Since most biscuit recipes come together with just a few everyday ingredients — flour, butter and some kind of liquid, plus optional add-ins like cheese — the key to turning out the very best results is the technique used in prepping them. It's all about using cold ingredients and remembering to not overwork the dough. In this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, Ina Garten starts with cold butter and buttermilk, and she makes sure to not overmix the dough as she's adding components. What results is flaky, buttery biscuits laced with gooey cheddar.
