  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 jalapeno - seeded and finely diced


  • Freeze butter before hand, for about an hour. This will allow it to more easily be cut into the flour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Take butter and cut it up into small cubes. In a small bowl add a handful of flour and then add butter, mix around so butter is coated in flour. Add butter to food processor and pulse a few times to finely chop it up.
  • In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add in cut up butter and mix with hand mixer until the dough is very crumbly.
  • Add in buttermilk and chopped jalapeno, continue to mix until dough mixture forms. Knead dough with your fingers for 2 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured surface, spread out dough to 1/2 inch thick. You can use your hands to roll and pat it. Using biscuit cutters or circle cookie cutters, cut biscuits.
  • Keep repeating until all dough is used, sometimes respreading the dough if needed. You will get 18-20 biscuits.
  • Put biscuits on greased baking sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the bottoms turn slightly brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!
