  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk chilled
  • 8 tbsp butter melted and slightly cooled


  • Heat oven to 475 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  • Add the melted butter to the buttermilk and stir until small clumps form.
  • Combine the buttermilk mixture and dry ingredients with a rubber spatula, until just incorporated and the dough starts to slightly pull away from the bowl.
  • Using a greased ¼-cup measure, scoop out mounds of the dough and drop them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake the biscuits until the tops are golden brown and crisp, 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Top with additional melted butter if desired. Serve warm.
