Learn the secrets of making southern-style buttermilk biscuits that bake up tall, fluffy, and light as a cloud. Homemade bread in 20 minutes or less!
Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk the dry ingredients together until combined, then cut the butter into half-inch cubes and add to the bowl.
Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour until the pieces of butter are no bigger than the size of a pea.
Stir in the buttermilk until a shaggy dough forms.
Dip a 2-inch diameter cutter into flour and cut rounds.
Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet (with their sides barely touching) and bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden.
*If using self-rising flour, the baking powder and salt may be omitted.
