National Buttermilk Biscuit

Big Fluffy Biscuits:  Preheat oven to 475° and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix together:
2 C flour
2 t baking powder

1 T (heaping) dark brown sugar

sprinkle cinnamon

Mix 1 cup cold buttermilk with 1 stick melted, unsweetened butter, stirring with a balloon whisk until butter clumps.  Let sit 5 minutes

Mix all ingredients, stirring just to moisten.

Use ¼ cup portion/ice cream scoop to drop biscuits on parchment paper. Sprinkle tops with white sugar. Bake at 475° for 11 – 13 minutes. The biscuits will expand during cooking to be about 2½” diameter, and 1¼” high.
