These are super easy biscuits to make. I often start the dough ahead of time and place it in the refrigerator. Then I pull it out and finish it just before I want to bake the biscuits.
These are our favorite biscuits to serve with gravy.
Use cold butter cubes for best results!
Mix flour, baking powder, dry buttermilk, and salt together.
Add the cubed butter and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until coarse crumbs form.
Place in fridge for a few hours if desired.
Make well, pour water into, and stir until just combined.
Lightly knead dough on lightly floured surface.
Form into rectangle and then fold one side into the center, then the other side.
Gently flatten and fold again. Repeat twice.
Gently roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Arrange with sides touching in a lightly greased 10-inch cast iron skillet or baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown on top.
Remove from the oven. Brush with melted butter if desired
Optional: replace dry buttermilk and water with 1 cup +1 Tbl cold buttermilk. Great with gravy!
