Ingredients
  

  • 2.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 cup of milk buttermilk, or unsweetened plant based milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice leave this out if you are using buttermilk
  • 1 stick frozen butter 1/2 cup

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set aside. Freeze a stick of butter for 30 minutes or overnight before starting this recipe. Butter must be really cold.
  • In a big bowl, sift your flour, add your baking powder and salt and whisk. In a separate bowl make buttermilk if you don’t have any.
  • Add 1 cup of any milk to a bowl with 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice and let it sit for a few minutes until it curdles or forms lumps & you have buttermilk.
  • Take your frozen butter and grate or chop it finely and add it to your flour and break it all with your hands until a crumbly dough.
  • Now, add your buttermilk to your bowl and mix/ knead until a soft dough for a few minutes. Lightly flour your counter and roll out your dough with a rolling pin (1 inch thickness) and use a glass or a cookie cutter to cut out biscuits.
  • Place your biscuits onto your parchment paper and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy

Notes

Please note: use a plant based butter to make these vegan + a plant based milk too.
