Fluffy Flaky breakfast biscuits...

Warm fresh biscuits for breakfast, I love them..I guess I started liking it after having the breakfast sandwiches we get on warm biscuits in Dunkin Donuts...yummm
Okay, to be candid, I was not sure i could bake biscuits at home...its like the sugar glazed donuts from Dunkin Donuts...I don't think I will be ever able to make such soft and spongy ones at home...wait a  never know.....i might some day...oh!! how optimistic (not at all like me :)
Okay, go ahead and give this a try....I am sure you will be happy with the results...We started our new year with these fluffy home made biscuits for breakfast...

You'll need:

All purpose flour: 2 1/2 cups
Baking powder: 2 tsp
Baking Soda: 1/4 tsp
Salt: 1 1/2 tsp
Sugar: 1 tbsp
Butter: 1/2 cup (chilled)
Buttermilk: 1 cup (chilled)

How to make:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients, ie; all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and the sugar.
Cut in the cold butter with a fork into the dry ingredients and mix it together...(there will be small chunks of butter, which is totally okay)
Pour the buttermilk and mix using a wooden spoon until the dough starts to come together.
Now knead using your hands for a couple of times. The dough should be sticky.
Turn the dough on to a  floured surface and knead it just until it dough comes together.
Roll the dough using a rolling pin  to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out rounds using a biscuit cutter and place them on the baking sheet. (At this point you can brush the top of each with some melted gives the golden crust on top)
Bake in the preheated oven for about 12 min, or until it gets the golden crust on top.

Serve hot out of the oven....a perfect breakfast as such... good for sandwiches too...

You'll have a good one :)
