The other day my husband told me, "I want biscuits, can you make biscuits?" I laughed, of course I can! And you can to by following this simple recipe. Skip the canned biscuits from the store and go fresh next time. You can also freeze these for future meals.

P.S. These smell soooo good fresh out of the oven.

What you need:

  • 1 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 t. sugar
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 3 T. butter
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk

Picture of the ingredients. For reference I use turbinado sugar and buttermilk powder in this recipe.

Mix together the dry ingredients.

Add in the butter and the buttermilk. Mix well.

Knead a few times until you have a nice dough.

Flatten the dough out with your fingers. It should be about 1/2 inch thick.

Use a biscuit cutter to make the biscuit shapes. I don't have a biscuit cutter so I just use a glass. You should be able to get 9 biscuits out of this recipe.

Place them on a baking sheet at bake at 350F for about 10 minutes until brown on top.

Serve with butter or jam. Yum!

Or if you want something with a little different flavor, you can try this other easy homemade biscuit recipe made with cream!

when would I freeze them? After I bake them or throw them in the freezer and just bake them when i need them?

Hmmm I think you could actually do either. Freeze the dough and then thaw and bake later or bake first and freeze!

Any chance there is a gluten free version? Would any gluten free all purpose blend work?

I haven’t tried this recipe gluten free yet but it’s worth a shot!

I love this recipe! I make it way more often than I should haha! Today my hub suggested that I try folding and rolling and folding and rolling and so on several times to get them more flaky, so I did and they were AMAZING and super layered and delicious. Thank you!
