CLASSIC BUTTERMILK BISCUITS

Cutting, stacking, and pressing down the dough multiple times help create sky-high layers in these gorgeous biscuits.

MAKES ABOUT 12

3½ cups all-purpose flour*
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1¼ cups cold unsalted butter, cubed
1 cup cold whole buttermilk
1 large egg, beaten
Flaked sea salt
Butter and honey, to serve

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cold buttermilk until a shaggy dough forms.

3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough into a rectangle, and cut into fourths. Stack each fourth on top of each other, and pat into a rectangle again. Repeat procedure 3 times. Pat or roll dough to 1-inch thickness. Using a 2½-inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut dough without twisting cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on prepared pan. Freeze until cold, about 10 minutes. Brush with egg; sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm with butter
