Making homemade buttermilk biscuits from scratch is incredibly easy using this simple recipe. As a child, it was ritual to get biscuits with fried chicken on the weekends with my family. The biscuits were of the dry and tasteless fast food variety, I would always give the biscuits to my brother who would eat almost anything. The homemade buttermilk biscuits from this recipe erase all those bad memories and preconceptions of what real biscuits should taste like; they're moist, flaky, buttery and are to die for. I love eating these straight from the sheet pan when they're fresh and hot out of the oven.

This recipe is adapted from Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home. If you don't have a food processor or stand mixer, you can use your hands and a bowl to mix the dough, the less you work the dough, the flakier the biscuits will turn out.

Equipment
Sheet pan or cookie pan
Round cookie cutter (optional)
Food processor or Stand Mixer (optional)
Parchment Paper (optional)

Ingredients
2 cups cake flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
8oz unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1½ cups buttermilk

Directions
1. Preheat your oven to 425°F

2. Combine all the dry ingredients (cake flour, AP flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda) using your stand mixer.

3. Cut the butter into 1/2 inch cubes. It's important that your butter is cold and not warm or melted.

4. Add the chilled cubed butter to your dry ingredients and mix very lightly until the pieces of butter are about pea-sized or smaller. It's extremely crucial that you don't overwork the biscuit dough, it shouldn't form a solid mass!

5. Make a little "well" inside the dough mixture, and pour in the buttermilk. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently mix the dough and buttermilk until they just begin to combine. Again, at this point your biscuit dough should not form a solid mass, the less you work it the better.

6. Turn the dough out onto a floured cutting board or other suitable work surface. Gently push the dough together and flatten it to about 3/4 inches thick.

7. Cut the dough using a 2½ inch round cookie cutter. If you don't have a cookie cutter you can improvise using the top of a glass cup or a knife. The excess dough can be pushed back together to form more biscuits.

8. Brush the top of the biscuits with a little buttermilk, and bake them for 15 - 18 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

Your homemade buttermilk biscuits will be a nice golden brown when done. You can serve them with some melted butter or raspberry jam, it's up to you, go wild!

Wisconsin Primary Tests Ex-Governor
Three months ago, the Wisconsin Republican Womens Nike Air Presto senatorial primary looked like a cakewalk for former four-term Gov. Womens Nike Air Max Tommy Thompson. Since then, Tuesday's contest has turned into a street fight, with Mr. Thompson's three competitors sinking their Nike Air Max TN teeth into what once was his greatest strength: a history of compromise.

The key to Mr. Thompson's success in the 1980s and '90s, when he was the most popular politician in Nike Air Max Lunar Wisconsin, was his ability to work with a bipartisan state legislature to pass several landmark pieces of Nike Air Max 1 legislation. But more than a decade since he last held elected office, the Republican Party's shift to Cheap Air Max 2012 the right has set Mr. Thompson up for accusations that he is a closet moderate.

The broadsides Womens Air Max LTD have slashed the former governor's lead from close to 20 percentage points in June polls to a Nike Air Max 1.3 dead heat in several recent ones, as outside groups as well as his opponents have unleashed attacks. Cheap Nike Air Max Before the final weekend of campaigning, one-fifth of likely voters remained undecided, according to a Marquette University Law Women Air Max 24-7 School poll. The survey found Mr. Thompson still holding an Nike Air Presto eight-point lead over his closest opponent, Eric Hovde. Other polls have shown Mr. Hovde ahead.

Mr. Thompson said the changes in campaign politics have taken him by surprise. "I never expected to be outspent Air Max Running Shoes 10 to one," he said in an interview. The politics have "become much more vicious, much less truthful Nike Air Max 89 and there's no doubt the party has changed."
Mr. Hovde (pronounced HUV-dee) is a 48-year-old hedge-fund manager, banker and political neophyte who moved back to Wisconsin after two decades in Washington. He has invested millions of dollars in the race and has criticized Mr. Thompson as a business-as-usual politician with antiquated Nike Air Max 90 For Sale ideas who helped dig the nation into a fiscal hole. He has gone so far as to assert Mr. Thompson lacks the intellectual acumen necessary to grasp the complexities of the global financial crisis. Mr. Thompson calls that argument ridiculous and counters that he is a rarity among politicians because he helped turn back government entitlement by limiting welfare in his state.

Before last month, much of Wisconsin's political attention was focused elsewhere: Republican Gov. Scott Walker Air Max 91 in June survived a recall challenge that sprouted early in 2011 when he scrapped collective-bargaining Air Max Terra Ninety rights for most state employees. Mr. Thompson benefited from the low profile of his primary.

But the recent attacks have forced him to play defense. One such assertion—which he denies—is that Mr. Thompson, who Air Max 95 For Sale served under President George W. Bush as Secretary of Health and Human Services, supports the Obama administration's health-care overhaul. Mr. Thompson, 70, has met charges Nike Air Griffey 2 that he is too old with a round of 50 push-ups and plenty of rhetorical counterpunches.

"I'm working harder than I have Nike Air Max 180 since the time I first ran for governor," he said.

The negative campaigning has prompted Mr. Walker to ask the rivals to restrain their rhetoric to avoid Air Hoop Structure undermining their chances against Air Max 2012 For Women Tammy Baldwin, a Democratic congresswoman running unopposed Air Max Shoes 2009 for her party's nomination. If Republicans win the seat, being vacated by retiring Democrat Herb Kohl, they would hold both of Wisconsin's Senate posts. Democrats effectively Womens Air Max 1 control the U.S. Senate 53-47, and Republicans see Wisconsin as a steppingstone to taking back the chamber.

Mr. Hovde has said "the Womens Air Max 90 U.S. Senate is not an entitlement," and the time has come for leaders from the private sector Cheap Nike Air Max 2011 to step forward and rescue the nation from a class of career politicians.

As Mr. Hovde and Mr. Thompson have cut into each other, the main beneficiary has been Mark Neumann, a home builder Womens Air Max 95 and former two-term congressman who lost both his earlier bids for statewide office. He is backed Men Air Max 2012 by many in the tea party as well as small-government advocates, the Club for Growth. Mr. Neumann's campaign website proclaims him the state's most conservative congressman of the past 30 years.

"I believe people will come home Nike Air Max 24-7 to a proven conservative," Mr. Neumann said. "They know I have been tested under fire."

The Marquette poll Womens Air Max 2009 found Mr. Neumann's support nearly doubling to 18% in the past month. That same poll found Mr. Nike Air Max Classic BW Thompson with 28% and Mr. Hovde with 20%.

In fourth place is Jeff Womens Air Max 2010 Fitzgerald, speaker of the state assembly. Mr. Fitzgerald has suffered from a lack of campaign Nike Air Max Light cash and said he hopes the circular firing squad may yet leave him Womens Air Max 2011 the last man standing.

"Those three are going negative Nike Air Max Ltd and I think we'll see a backlash," he said. "I think it will mean a turnaround in the polls."
