Instructions
  1. If you’re planning on baking these now heat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Melt your butter. I use the microwave, or you can use the stove. I’ll use a glass bowl to mix everything in that way I can melt the butter directly in the bowl using the microwave.
  3. Once the butter is melted, stir in the buttermilk. Make sure it’s nice and cold then stir around using a fork. The idea is to get the butter into small pieces to be spread throughout the dough. I use this method as apposed to cutting cold butter into flour just because it’s been easier for me and find the results to be just right for us.
  4. Sprinkle in your salt, baking soda and baking powder. Give it a quick stir to combine.
  5. Add in the flour and mix with a fork to combine. It will be pretty wet.
  6. Once all the flour is combined dump the mixture onto your bon Mat (or rolling surface).
  7. Sprinkle it with a little extra flour, and flour your hands. Slowly squeeze the dough together, and fold it over itself until it is well combined. You should find a dough forming pretty quickly.
  8. Once you have a solid piece of dough, flatten it out until you have the thickness you desire. I usually shot for about an inch thick. Then take your favorite biscuit, cookie cutter, or glass and cut out your biscuits.
  9. Reroll the leftover dough to about the same thickness (maybe a little more to account for shrinking) and cut more biscuits. Continue this until your dough is pretty much used up.
  10. Place your biscuits on the mat and bake for about 15-20 minutes (depending on size and desired darkness) If you are making smaller biscuits you may be able to bake them off in about 10.
Recipe Notes

These are super versatile and fun to make.  Have them plain as a side or for breakfast with some melted butter or honey, or with some sausage gravy spread over them.  They even make the perfect fun dessert with small biscuits as a strawberry short cake.  Just sprinkle a little sugar on top before baking if desired for a slightly sweeter touch.  Some fresh herbs mixed in would make a great addition as well.  So many options to have some fun and get creative with these.  PS you can also place the cut biscuits on the mat and freeze them before baking.  Once frozen place in a ziplock bag to be enjoyed later.  If baking from frozen it’s about double the time.
