Classic Buttermilk Biscuits

2 tbsp flour, for sprinkling
2 tbsp cornmeal, for sprinkling
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. cold, unsalted butter cut into pieces
1 egg
3/4 cup cold buttermilk

preheat oven to 425. Grease baking sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal and flour. in large bowl mix flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. add egg and buttermilk, stirring to moisten. dough should be shaggy, but not sticky.
turn onto floured surface. knead about 6 times. roll to 3/4" thick. don't add too much flour or will be tough. cut out with biscuit cutter....cutting straight down without twisting. bake 1/2" apart for 15 to 18 minutes.
it really helps to make sure your buttermilk and butter are very cold.



This is the recipe I use each and every time I make my own homemade biscuits and gravy. You
simply must start off right, and this recipe is perfection! Leftover biscuits? No problem, make a
few breakfast sandwiches out of them and take them to work - they reheat great! Or, you could
just spoon some delicious homemade apple butter or preserves over the top....heaven!
