Best Ever Biscuits from Ina Pinkney
Makes: about 4 servings
  • 10 oz. Flour, all purpose
  • 1 Tbsp. Baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. Buttermilk powder
  • 4 oz. Butter, unsalted, cut into pieces, frozen
  • 1 c. Water, ice cold
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone liner.
  3. Into a food processor, put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and buttermilk powder. Blend thoroughly.
  4. Add the butter and pulse 6-8 times and then run for 4 seconds more.
  5. Put the mix into a bowl and add the ice water. Stir gently, but thoroughly, until it forms a shaggy dough.
  6. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead about 10 times.
  7. Pat into a circle about 1-inch thick and use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits.
  8. NOTE: Use only a straight up and down motion…. never twist. Twisting the cutter may prevent biscuits from rising properly.
  9. Place on prepared sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. (Leftovers, if there are any, can be frozen.)
