Triple Sifted Biscuits

Triple Sifted Biscuits


Yield: Depends on the size of your biscuit!

3 pounds flour (roughly 9 cups)

1½ ounces baking powder (2 tablespoons)

1 ounce salt (1 tablespoon kosher)

4 ounces sugar (2 tablespoons)

1 pound butter, cold

2 pounds buttermilk (1 quart)


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together. Repeat the process three times.

Put your cold butter into a food processor and add just enough of the flour mixture to cover the butter. Pulse until you achieve a crumb. Add this back to your flour mixture.

Working by hand, very quickly mix the dough until it just comes together. Roll out flat to an inch thick on a floured working surface and cut your biscuits.

Place your biscuits on a lined baking sheet and cook for 10-15 minutes until they are done.

Immediately brush with melted butter and serve.
