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.
