  • 4 cups self rising flour
  • 2 TB baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups salted butter, cold cut into 1/4" pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk


  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, add the cut up butter. Blend into the flour until butter pieces are about the size of a pea.
  • With a wooden spoon, mix in 2 beaten eggs and then 1 1/2 cups buttermilk. Stir until dough forms together. (should be sticky. Add more buttermilk if dough is too dry). Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes-overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • On a floured surface, form your dough into a circle, 14" across and about 1/2" thick. Make 20 biscuits by using a 2 3/4" thick round cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Align so that they are touching.
  • Beat 1 egg and 1 TB buttermilk in a small bowl. Brush biscuit tops and place in oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy warm or for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
