High-Rise Buttermilk Biscuits
Ingredients54 m servings 349
- Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment. Add unsalted butter and mix at medium speed until well incorporated and the mixture resembles wet sand, about 4 minutes.
- Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in buttermilk until dough sticks together.
- Dump dough onto a flour work surface; pat into a rectangle. Pat remaining dry crumbs into the mixture by hand.
- Cut dough in half with a floured bench knife; stack cut halves on top of each other. Press layers together to about 1 1/2-inch thickness, shaping a long rectangle as you go. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
- Cut dough into 8 even squares with the bench knife. Cut off uneven edges and put these scraps to the side; clean cuts on all sides will encourage rise. Pat scraps together to make 1 odd-shaped ninth biscuit.
- Place biscuits close together in a 9-inch square pan and brush with melted salted butter. Place pan on top of the warm stove for 10 to 15 minutes to rise.
- Bake biscuits in the preheated oven, checking halfway through bake time, until tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 14 to 18 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- In Step 3, add up to 1/4 cup extra buttermilk if mixture is not sticking together.

Great recipe - I was a little hesitant since they are mixed for so long, but the dough was great. The pre-bake rise is a genius step - these raised really high!
