These easy-to-make country biscuits are great for soaking up gravies and sauces. Serve them with breakfast, asa side to any meal, or with Thanksgiving leftovers.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting work area
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 8 tablespoons (4 ounces) unsalted butter, chilled
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the 3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Pulse flour mixture to combine. Cut the cold butter into small pieces. With the processor going, slowly add the chilled butter pieces to the dry ingredients through the feed tube using the pulse feature. Pulse until butter incorporates into the flour and becomes the size of small peas.
  3. With the processor on, add the buttermilk all at once. Pulse until the mixture barely forms a ball.
  4. Dust your work surface lightly with flour. Gather the biscuit dough gently into a ball. Using lightly floured hands, press dough into a circle that is ½-inch thick. Lightly flour a pastry cutter and cut out 12 rounds of dough. Place biscuits on the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden in color; about 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately brush the biscuit tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Serve hot with additional butter!
