These Easy Homemade Biscuits are a quick and delicious addition to any meal!
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.
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:
- 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
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
