Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda and whisk well to combine. Next, add the butter and lemon zest and combine the mixture with a fork until coarse crumbles are created. Add the buttermilk and mix until just combined. Make a disk with the dough and cover in plastic wrap. Chill for 15 minutes.

  • Dust a cutting board with flour. Roll out the dough to about 3/4-inch thickness. Cut the biscuits with a 1 1/2-inch floured cookie cutter, juice glass or something similar. Reroll the remaining dough and continue making biscuits.

  • Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the raw sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
