BUTTERMILK BISCUITS

Served with Butter & Strawberry Jam
By Carmen Ortiz of Baking is my Zen

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks (1/2 pound) cold unsalted butter, grated and chilled
1 1/2 cups cold buttermilk

Yield: about 8 3.5-inch biscuits

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 450 Degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Combine ingredients.
3. Add the very cold, grated, butter in flour mixture. Mix gently with pastry cutter.
4. Make a well in the center of the bowl.
5. Pour the cold buttermilk in center. Stir in a folding motion until combined. Dough will have dry patches, but that’s ok.
6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
7. Bring dough pieces together. Using your hands, gently, shape in a rectangle shape. Add a little flour on top if needed.
8. Fold dough crosswise into thirds…as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope.
9. Reshape dough into a 1/2 inch to 1 inch thick rectangle. [select your preference as to thickness]
10. Again, Fold dough crosswise into thirds…as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope.
11. Reshape dough into a 1/2 inch and up to 1 inch thick rectangle. [I prefer large, thick biscuits]
12. Using a 3.5 inch cookie cutter, cut dough into rounds.
13. Place biscuits in an ungreased baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.
14. Bake until light golden brown, about 16-18 minutes.
15. Remove biscuits from pan. Place on cooling rack.
16. Serve biscuits warm with butter and jam.
