2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (optional)


Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse sand.

Pour the buttermilk into the bowl and stir with a fork until the dough comes together in a rough ball.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together in a smooth ball.

Pat the dough out until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass, cut out the biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter, if using.

Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and fluffy.

Serve the biscuits warm, with butter and honey, jam, or your favorite toppings.
