Easy Biscuit Recipe

What you need:

  • 2 c. flour + a little more
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 2 t. sugar
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. cream
  • 5 T softened butter

How to make easy biscuits:

Flaky Biscuit Dough

Mix together all the ingredients. You may need to add a little more flour.

Cutting the Biscuits

One of the reasons I love this easy recipe is that there is no need to knead the dough. Just roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.

Cut the dough into biscuit shapes with a biscuit cutter. If you don’t have a biscuit cutter, you can use a glass cup or even a small bowl depending on the size you’d like.

Baking Easy Biscuits

Place the cut biscuits on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until slightly brown on the tops.

  1. Thank you! I’m looking for a biscuit recipe to use with my macerated triple berry concoction I just made!

  2. This may be a silly question but what kind of cream did you use?? I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe for years.

  3. I made these for Canadian Thanksgiving last week and the family loved them! It was my first time making biscuits from scratch. Thank you for a great recipe. 🙂

  4. Coming from Europe I just have a quick question to the measurements: is ‘c’ a cup and what is the difference between ‘T’ and ‘t’? Thank you for the help 🙂

  5. I made these for dinner last night, they were so good! I think they taste like the ones from KFC but much better and better for you! I am in charge of biscuits for Thanksgiving so I think I will be making these. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Looks so good! I’ll have to try it.
    The recipe I’ve always used is 2 cups Flour, 1Tbsp Baking Powder, 1tsp Salt, 1/4 cup oil, 3/4 cup water. Mine have always turned out a little dry and crumbly though so I think the cream and butter would work much better. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday! I haven’t had biscuits in ages! These look so tender.

  8. I’m with you, I am always on the hunt for good homemade biscuits! Can’t wait to try these! Thanks for linking up to Motivation Monday!

  9. Oh thsese look so good. It reminds me of the biscuits my Mom used to make. I don’t think she used sugar but it sounds like a good additoin.

  10. Those look wonderful and I’m always looking for a great gluten-free biscuit recipe … especially for things like chicken or sausage gravy. Are these biscuits sweet? And if so, do you thing it would make much difference to leave the sugar out? Thanks! 🙂

  11. Oh my! This looks sooo yummy and just perfect to pair with oh, just about anything. It’s comfort food at its best and cream biscuits are what this girl is salivating over right now 😉
