You know those piping hot KFC biscuits they add to all the family meals?

Well, they’re basically the best things ever.

I would devour those as a child. I could care less for the fried chicken. Or the potato wedges.

The biscuits were just pure life.

And so are these biscuits.

Except. Well, they’re completely homemade with a few embellishments.

They are extra tall, extra buttery and extra flaky. The 3 most important elements in a biscuit.

And if you do make these, I just ask that you serve these warm and hot of the oven.

It will make all of the difference.

I will also say that a little bit of additional melted butter right on top never hurt anyone.

45 minutes20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add cold butter, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 1 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut out 10-12 rounds using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet; place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove biscuits from freezer and brush tops with butter. Place into oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Serve warm.
