You guys!! This recipe has slowly made its way to my top five and I have NO idea how that happened! I decided that it is time to give it a quick update and that is why you might notice the changes in the post content. I have read through each comment and have officially made some adjustments to the original recipe at your request.

Here is where I admit that I have actually only made this recipe twice. The first was when I created them for this post (served with my 3 ingredient sausage gravy) and the second was me troubleshooting some issues everyone said they were having. I did not change the ingredient list at all since the flavor was spot on but I did change the instructions. Originally I had you use a food processor or blender to mix the dough but that led to some issues for a few people. SO we are moving things to an electric mixer and I have to say that I am VERY happy with the results.

This recipe produces a delicious buttermilk biscuit that is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Spread it with a little jam or jelly or creamy gravy. Either way you can not go wrong!

If you are a small family like us it might help to freeze half of the dough. Place the cut unbaked biscuits on a baking tray and place them directly into the freezer. Flash freeze for 30 minutes, individually wrap in plastic wrap, and place in a labeled Ziploc. When you are ready to bake them you can let them thaw or simply add a few minutes to the original baking time!

Items used in this recipe:


Easy Homemade Biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter (I recommend salted with these)
  • 1 C. buttermilk


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Use a pastry blender or two forks to cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Fold in the buttermilk until combined.
  3. Turn your dough out onto a well floured surface. Use your hands to pat the dough into a 1 inch thick round. Fold on top of itself and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.
  4. Using a round cookie cutter, or a glass cup, cut out your circles. Place onto a greased pan and bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure you watch them closely so they don’t over bake.

    Yum! They look delicious 🙂 I just made some biscuits too this weekend (small world right??) I needed something for my apple butter recipe going up this week! You can’t go wrong with biscuits!

      I hadn’t tried them until I decided we needed biscuits and gravy the other day. They are AMAZINGLY easy. And you can’t mess it up. They turn out fluffy every time.

    • Kayla says

      I made these tonight. I don’t know what I did wrong, but they turned out horrible. It was my first ever attempt to make biscuits and no success.

    We made these today for brunch and didn’t have a problem. The dough was a little wet, but I assumed it was the way it was supposed to be. Did you change the recipe Cheri?

  3. Christine says

    You mentioned that if you have a small family you might not want to make “so many” biscuits. I was wondering, how many biscuits does this recipe make?

  4. Michelle says

    I’ve never cooked with buttermilk, and have no idea where I’d find it. Could I use something else instead? Like 2% or cream? Will it come out the same?

  5. says

    Whats up. Terrific blog. I wanted to ask, though, where did you purchase the
    theme? Or did you produce it yourself? I’m
    beginning my own website and am on the lookout for
    a theme as solid as this one. Thanks so much.

    I have made biscuits before and today mine turned out awful! I’m looking for a new recipe. Do you use self – rising flour? I made my own buttermilk, which may have been my problem. I don’t know where I went wrong and I was so disappointed! I will be trying this recipe next!

  7. Amy says

    I made these yesterday and they were SO easy with great results! I will definitely make these again – thank you for this recipe!

  8. Jena says

    The batter for mine came out so sticky! I followed the recipe and used them in the food processor, but I think I would rather have done this by hand. I’m not sure what happened but I had to add lots of flour to get them to not be sticky, I’d say about another 1/2 a cup at least. I wish these would have worked!

    • Jesseca says

      I just got an email with a similar problem. I’ll make the recipe one more time and see if I maybe wrote something wrong in the directions or ingredients.

  9. Wendy says

    Hi, Do you think I can substitute the buttermilk with Yakult? (Hope you know what yakult is )… And another question… Can I use My mixer instead of the blender? (I read that someone made it in her industrial blender (mine’s also industrial) and didn’t work very well and My food processor is really small… )

    • Jesseca says

      hm… I’m not sure about the Yakult substitute. i have a new biscuit recipe that doesn’t require a blender going up next week. check back!

      • Wendy says

        Thanks!!! I’ll be waiting for it:)
        I just made this one (made my own buttermilk 1C milk+1T lemon juice) but I needed to add more flour, and baked for more time… they tasted real good

    I made these as drop biscuits for quick biscuits and gravy. They were golden brown on the bottom and lightly brown on top, tender on the inside. My guy said they were perfect. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    • Michelle says

      Oh, I used powdered buttermilk. I whisked 4 tablespoons with the dry ingredients, cut the butter into it until it was slightly crumbly, then added the required amount of water. I stirred it until it made a sticky dough then dropped it by big spoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
