Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

4 cups flour
¼ cup baking powder
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1½ cups cold butter, grated
2 lg eggs, beaten
1½ cups buttermilk

1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp buttermilk

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.  Cut in butter using a Pasteur blender until the pieces are a consistent size, about the size of peas.  Stir in eggs and once combined add buttermilk and stir until dough comes together.  Rest covered in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400°.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Scrape dough out of bowl onto floured work surface.  And flatten to about 1/2” thick.  Cut out biscuits.  Collect scraps and repeat.  Place biscuits on parchment-lined baking sheet with biscuits touching.

In a small bowl, beat together egg and buttermilk.  Brush mixture on top of biscuits.

Place in oven and bake until browned, 15-20 minutes.  Allow the biscuits to cool slightly before removing from baking sheet.  Serve with fried eggs and sausage gravy.
