We love these biscuits for their buttery flavor and flakey texture.  Serve alongside soup or salad for a simple dinner or with fruit and a dollop of sweetened crème fraîche for an extra special treat.  


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup cold Vermont Creamery Sea Salt Cultured Butter - 82% Butterfat cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons Vermont Creamery Sea Salt Cultured Butter - 82% Butterfat melted


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F.

  • STEP 2

    Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

  • STEP 3

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead 10 times or until smooth. Roll out dough to 9x6-inch rectangle, about 3/4-inch thick. Cut in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 4 even pieces, forming 8 rectangular biscuits. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheet.

  • STEP 4

    Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check biscuits often to assure they do not overbake.)
