Vinny’s Buttermilk Biscuits

Prep time: 20 min   Cook time: 15min   Yield: 18 biscuits

8 cups flour
4 tbls baking powder
4 tsp salt
4 tbls sugar
304 g butter
4 cups of buttermilk

1. Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, combine well. 

2. Weigh out your butter with a scale and grate with a cheese grater. Gently toss the butter in with the dry ingredients. Make sure not to overwork it, you want to keep the butter from melting. 

3. Make a small well in the center of the ingredients and add the buttermilk slowly. Then mix with a spatula to avoid melting the butter with the heat from your hands. 

4. Cover a large flat surface with flour, and place your dough in the center (it will still be fairly moist at this point). Dust flour on top and begin to knead—about 10-15 times. 

5. Roll out your dough to about 3/4” thick. We use a 4” circle cutter for my biscuits. 

6. Place biscuits on a non-greased sheet tray with NO parchment paper. 

7. Place biscuits in the fridge and cool for 10 min while oven comes up to 425°.

8. Bake for 12 min then remove from the oven, brush melted butter on over the tops of your biscuits, then bake for an additional 2-3 minutes. 

 Ta-da, biscuits! Now do right by the recipe and drown them in your favorite fatty morning proteins.
