These buttermilk biscuits are crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and so flaky—all thanks to the convection function of the Anova Precision Oven. They’re especially delicious served warm with butter slathered on top.

3. Make Dough

Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to the butter. Mix with your fingertips to combine. You should still be able to feel pieces of butter in the mixture. Add the buttermilk and mix gently with your hands to form a dough. Do not knead the dough.
