"Hot to Be More Careful" Biscuits Recipe

Updated: May 7, 2023


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

  • 1 cup cold buttermilk

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (for brushing on top)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine.

  3. Add the cold butter cubes to the bowl, and use a pastry blender or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture. Keep working the mixture until the butter is broken down into pea-sized pieces.

  4. Pour the cold buttermilk into the bowl and stir gently to combine. Be careful not to overmix the dough - it should still be somewhat shaggy.

  5. Lightly flour a clean surface and turn the dough out onto it. Use your hands to pat the dough into a rough rectangle shape that's about 1 inch thick.

  6. Use a biscuit cutter or a round cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 1 inch of space between each biscuit.

  7. Brush the melted butter over the top of each biscuit.

  8. Bake the biscuits for about 15-18 minutes, or until they're golden brown and cooked through.

  9. Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving.
