  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk + enough for brushing
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  • Add flour to a large bowl and cut butter in with two forks or a pastry blender. Add in buttermilk and mix lightly until combined.
  • Pour onto a floured surface and knead three or four times. Pat into to 1/2-inch thickness and cut the dough with a large biscuit cutter or simply cut with a floured knife or bench scraper to make large square biscuits.
  • Place onto large baking sheet pan. Brush the tops of the biscuits with buttermilk and then sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and serve.
