    HisPixie's Note:

    Ever in search of biscuits that actually rise, I tried this recipe and they DID, indeed, rise! HINT: Do not twist the biscuit cutter, just punch through the dough. Twisting "seals" the edges and the biscuit doesn't rise as well. The secret to this recipe, according to the author, is the type of flour. The lower the protein content, the higher the biscuit will rise. "Southern" flours such as White Lily, are recommended. Since Southern flours aren't always available, she came up with this preparation.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    biscuits

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
    2. 2
      Prepare ingredients: Cut butter into small chunks, place in a bowl and return to fridge. Measure out buttermilk and set aside. Sprinkle flour on a work surface and have extra flour nearby for your hands and biscuit cutter. Have biscuit cutter and an ungreased baking sheet handy.
    3. 3
      Mix dough: In a medium-large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt until very well blended. Add butter and cut into flour using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingertips, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in buttermilk and stir lightly until dough comes together in a ball.
    4. 4
      Knead dough and cut biscuits: Dump dough mixture out onto floured work surface. With floured hands, lightly knead dough a few times until it is fairly well blended. Pat out into a circle, 3/4 - 1 inch thick. Dip cutter into flour and cut biscuits without twisting the cutter. Form the dough scraps into an extra biscuit-like shape instead of re-rolling the dough. Place cut biscuits together on the baking sheet so that the sides are touching. Brush tops with melted butter, if desired.
    5. 5
      Bake biscuits: place baking sheet in the middle of a preheated 500 degree oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove biscuits to a wire rack to cool for a few minutes.

      This is an Awesome recipe! Have been in search for a recipe that would turn out right every time. These are nice fluffy flakey biscuits. I will be sharing this recipe with my daughters, daughter-in-laws and my grand-daughters.
