Buttermilk Biscuits

a stack of biscuits

Who doesn't love a good biscuit, there so versatile. Great with stews, soups or fried food and gravy. They also bring back memories of arriving to grandmas and I knew as soon as I smelt the biscuits it was stew night.

As an adult now theres no more hoping they'll be made when I get home, but luckily they're not that hard to make. The big no-nos are how you add the butter and overworking the dough. Well lets jump into it.


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F-400°F and grease a baking sheet for later.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
  3. Next we need to add butter theres a few methods. One is to cut the butter up into small pieces and blend in flour with a fork or pastry blender. Another way is to use a cheese grater and shred into the flour.
  4. Now create a well in center of mixture and pour in buttermilk. Mix just until combined.
  5. Flour your counter and pour mixture onto floured surface. Only work with the dough as much as needed, then roll out about inch or two thick.
  6. Cut out circles about 2-3 inch diameter. If you want to you can brush the top with butter.
  7. Now place on baking sheet (they can be fairly close together) and cook for about 10 minutes or golden on top.
