How could I not have made biscuits until now? They are so delicious! This recipe is an adaptation of my friend Byron's southern-style biscuit recipe.
Makes 8 biscuits
Have everything very cold, except the oven which you should pre-heat right away to 500 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine:
270 g (2 cups) No. 2 Pastry Flour (OR No. 1 All-purpose Flour plus 1/4 tsp xanthan gum)
1 Tbsp Baking soda
a scant 1/2 tsp salt
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Cut in:
6 Tbsp unsalted butter
Blend in the butter until the mixture has pieces the size of peas and smaller. Then add:
a generous 1 cup buttermilk
