Flaky, buttery homemade biscuits that are to die for. These delicious biscuits are not only simple and soft, but make the perfect side dish for any meal.
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.
