Holiday Recipe #3 | Chewy Buttermilk Biscuits

Chewy Buttermilk Biscuits (Yield: 14 biscuits)
The less you knead the dough, the lighter it is!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 3 tbsp honey



  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and and cut using a pastry blender until it is fully incorporated. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and honey until well blended. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until it is fully incorporated.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and dust lightly with additional flour. Roll out until it is ½ inch thick and then fold it into thirds. Dust surface of dough lightly with flour again and re-roll until it is ½ inch thick. Lastly, fold into thirds again and roll out the dough until it is now ¾ inch thick.
  5. Cut biscuits using a ¾ inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
