Heat the oven to 425 degrees f.
Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
Add the butter and using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the flour mixture.
Slowly add the buttermilk and stir in using a fork. Once the dough is pulled together roll it out on a lightly floured surface and fold over onto itself a few times, adding more flour to the counter as needed until the dough is not sticky.
Cut out biscuits, and brush the biscuits with a little heavy cream and sprinkle with fresh black pepper.
Place the biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 11 minutes.
Remove from oven and set aside on a cooling rack.
