Ingredients

  • Add eggs, meats, and cheeses, and build a brunch buffet around these pillowy soft breakfast treats from Jason DeBriere of Peels restaurant in New York.

  • The Martha Stewart Show, February 2012

  • 4

    cups White Lily flour, plus more for work surface

  • 1

    tablespoon coarse salt

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • Pinch of baking soda

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cubed and well chilled

  • 1 1/4

    cups buttermilk, well shaken, plus more for brushing tops

  • (Make your own buttermilk - milk and lemon or vinegar)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees with a rack set in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add butter to flour mixture, and use your hands to mix just until medium pebble-size pieces form. Do not overmix. Add buttermilk and mix just until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Flatten and shape dough to form a 2-inch-thick square. Lightly flour top of dough; fold in corners and repeat process to create layers. Using a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out 8 biscuits, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush tops with buttermilk; transfer to oven and bake, rotating baking sheet halfway through, until golden, about 10 to 12 minutes.
