Self-Rising Biscuits

These are my favorite biscuits! They are made with FOUR ingredients and can be on your table in 30 minutes. To die for!

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 cups self-rising flour, plus more for surface
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, cold

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 475ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and the salt. Use a cheese grater and grate butter over the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Pour the milk over the top of the flour mixture. Stir gently with a wooden spoon until it all comes together. Flour a surface, then turn out the dough, and knead 10-15 times, adding a little more flour if it is too sticky.
  4. Roll out dough to 1/3 to 1/2-inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter to cut small to medium-sized circles.
  5. Place on baking sheet about 1/2-inch apart and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately brush on melted butter.
