  1. Preheat oven to 425

  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add butter and cut into flour until combined and coarse crumbs form.

  3. Stir in buttermilk, stirring until just combined. The dough will look shaggy.

  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Fold dough in half onto itself 3 times, forming a large rectangle 1/2 inch thick.

  5. Using a biscuit cutter, cut biscuits from dough. Combine scraps and cut more biscuits until scraps are used up.

  6. Arrange biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet so that they are centered and touching.

  7. Brush tops with buttermilk and bake for 15 minutes. Bake until golden brown on the top. Serve warm with gravy, jelly or honey and enjoy!
