These simple homemade biscuits are as delicious as they come and take just 10 minutes to prep and get into the oven!
Quick and tasty are two BIG factors in a winning recipe and this has them both.
At least in my opinion.
And the opinion of my picky 9 year old. He goes CRAZY for these biscuits. His favorite ways to serve have to be drizzled with honey, covered in sausage gravy, or as the bun to a tasty breakfast sandwich!
Easy Homemade Biscuits
The key to keeping these flaky is to handle to dough as little as possible.
You do not want the butter to melt at all so be sure you work quickly.
There are only a few basic ingredients to mix together but if you feel the dough start to get tacky I recommend some chill time in the refrigerator.
Another tip? Pat the dough- DO NOT roll.
With cold hands gently pat the dough down before cutting into your favorite shape. Bake and enjoy!
One of the best things about this recipe is that it is FREEZER FRIENDLY!
How to freeze biscuit dough:
- Follow the recipe directions all the way to cutting your biscuits.
- Place on a parchment lined tray.
- Flash freeze 20 minutes.
- Individually wrap each in plastic wrap and place in a labeled zip top bag.
- When you are ready to use: Remove from the freezer and bake as directed.
Amazing hack, am I right? Fresh, warm, homemade biscuits any time you are craving that flaky goodness.
Easy Homemade Biscuits
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 8 Tbsp cold butter (I recommend salted with these)
- 1 cup 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.
