Grandma’s Biscuits



°2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
°2 tablespoons baking powder
°1 teaspoon of sugar
°1 teaspoon of salt
°8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
°1 cup buttermilk
°2 tablespoons melted salted butter for brushing the top


Preheat oven to 425. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a food processor. Cut the frozen butter into cubes and add it to the flour, then pulse 6 or 7 times until it looks like a loose crumble. Return the dough to the bowl, add the buttermilk and stir with a spatula until it forms a rough ball (don't worry if it's a little sticky).
Roll out the dough on a floured surface and roll it into a rough rectangle about an inch thick. Fold it up and roll it up again gently. Repeat 6 times.
Gently roll out the dough again, so that it forms a rectangle. Cut the dough into cookies using a floured glass or cookie cutter. Do not bend the knife when cutting; this will crimp the edges of the cookie, preventing it from rising. If you have leftovers, simply reshape into a rectangle and cut out additional cookies.
Place the cookies on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Make sure they are touching. Bake until golden brown, about 10 to 15 minutes. For 6 to 8 people. Brush with melted butter and Enjoy!
