Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • Add butter and use a pastry blender or 2 forks to cut it in until there are no pieces larger than a pea.
  • Gradually add the buttermilk, stirring just until it is mixed in. Mix in chocolate chips.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Roll dough out, fold in half and roll out to 3/4-inch thickness. 
  • Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping it in flour each time.. Reroll scraps and cut more biscuits. Place biscuits in a 10-inch cast iron skillet so that they are just touching.
    Or you can place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool slightly and then drizzle with glaze.
  • To make glaze, whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.

Notes

I like to stick my butter in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes before making the biscuits to be sure it is very cold.
