Here's the official recipe:
- 12oz all purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 oz unsalted butter chilled
- 2 oz shortening chilled
- 1 cup buttermilk chilled
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400F
Step 2: Whisk the dry ingredients into a bowl.
Step 3: Cut in butter and shortening. He uses his hands but I like my pastry cutter. Here's Daniel working that dough.
Step 4: Make a well in the middle and pour in butter milk. Mix until just combined.
Step 5: Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and kneed gently until dough is soft and smooth
Step 6: Press into 1 inch thick round and cut out biscuits. Place biscuits on a sheet pan so that they are touching and gently press a dimple into the top with your finger
See the dimple?
Step 7: Bake until golden on top, 15-20 min. Serve warm.
Golden flaky deliciousness!
We served ours with gravy, but as Alton Brown says, that's another show.
