Chef Jup’s Biscuit Recipe 


– 3 cups all purpose flour

– 5 tsp baking powder

-1/2 tsp baking soda

-2 T sugar

– 1 1/2 tsp salt

– 1/2 cup chilled butter or vegetable shortening 

– 1 to 1 1/4 cup cold buttermilk

– melted butter or heavy cream to brush to the top 


  1. Preheat the oven to 400-450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  3. Cube the butter or shortening then cut it into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or pulse in a food processor. Cut until it becomes crumbly and resembles peas.
  4. Mix in 1 cup cold buttermilk, just until the crumbs are thoroughly moistened. Add up to ¼ cup additional buttermilk, if needed. The dough shouldn’t be overly wet but slightly sticky. 
  5. Roll or pat out on a lightly floured surface about ¾-1 inch thick. Cut into rounds using a 2-inch cookie cutter dipped in flour. Do not twist the dough with the cutter. Cut the dough, then lift the cookie cutter up.  
  6. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Brush the tops with melted butter or heavy cream. Bake at 400-450°F for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden and puffed.
  7. Brush with melted butter after removing from the oven. Serve immediately.
