How to make the perfect fluffy and flaky buttermilk biscuits from scratch recipe.
2 1/2 Cups of all purpose flour
1/2 of a cup of salted butter or one stick
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 of teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 egg yolk
Add the egg yolk to measuring cup and filled with buttermilk until you measure exactly one cup including the egg yolk.
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Using fingertips, rub 1/2 cup chilled butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk with the egg yolk and stir until evenly moistened. Flour your surface and roll out your dough folding it to form layers. Cut the dough into round biscuits and place onto a baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until biscuits until golden brown about 20 to 25 minutes and enjoy.
