Southern Biscuits Recipe
Makes 6 full 3" biscuits
Preheat the oven 425 F, Bake time 20 minutes.
Unsalted butter, cold 7 oz. (3/4 cup)
Buttermilk full fat 10.5 oz (1-1/4 cups), plus more due to room temperature and humidity.
Gluten free flour, 14 oz, (Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 ratio),This is the only flour I have used for these biscuits.
Baking soda 1/2 teaspoon
Baking Powder 4 teaspoons
Salt 1-1/4 teaspoons
Sift all the dry ingredients inside a medium to large bowl. Add cold butter and cut it with the bench scraper. Next use the rubbing method to disperse the butter into the dry ingredients. Don't over work the dough it should look like a large coarse meal. Next add the cold buttermilk all at once and folded into the dry ingredients. Form a square about 2" thick with a rolling pin. Next use a 3" round biscuit cutter and cut 6 biscuits. You will have a small bit of butter left enough to form a small biscuit. Place the 6 biscuits over parchment paper and bake for abut 20 minutes until they are golden brown. Take out of the oven an allow them to cool completely. Optional, you can brush the top of the biscuits with extra butter.
