Best-Ever Buttermilk Biscuits (Tips & Tricks Too) from Noble Pig


To make amazing buttermilk biscuits, you don't have to make them by hand. Using a stand mixer is the way to go when changing up a few ingredients that yield tender, flaky biscuits everytime.
This recipe also calls for cake flour which is not the norm for biscuits. However, cake flour has a lower protein content, allowingthe doughto withstand more mixing without overworking it and developing gluten, which will ultimately toughen the biscuits.
By pulsing (quickly turning on and off)the shortening and butter into the cake flour with the stand mixer, you prevent the heat from your hands from melting the fats during the typical "cutting in" stage. This also helps keep the flakes large for flakier biscuits.
