Author Ashlee Marie


  • 5 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbps sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 8 Tbsp butter chilled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 C buttermilk
  • 2 egg
  • 1/3 C water


  • preheat oven to 425
  • combine the flour, salt, sugar and powder
  • cut in the cold butter with pastry cutters or I use my pastry whips
  • in another container mix the buttermilk, eggs and water
  • pour over the dry ingredients and mix until combined (don't over mix though)
  • place onto well floured surface and pat out (I don't say roll out cause it's hard to roll, it's so sticky, but I flour my hands and pat it out) to 3/4 of an inch thick
  • use a cup or 2 1/2 inch round cutter to cut circles
  • bake for 12-14 mins
  • you can press the remaining dough together ONCE and cut a few more.
