Easy homemade biscuits are such a great morning comfort food. Just 6 simple ingredients and a few minutes for buttery soft and flaky biscuits.


  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, chilled and cubed
  • ¾ cups buttermilk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  4. Stir in the buttermilk and mix to form a dough ball.
  5. Place the dough ball on a heavily floured pastry board and let sit for a couple of minutes.
  6. Pat out the dough ball to about ½ inch.
  7. Cut the biscuits using a small glass with flour on the rim or use a biscuit cutter.
  8. Place the biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill for 20-30 minutes before baking.
  9. Bake for about 12 minutes.


Biscuits are freezer friendly, place biscuits on a baking sheet and when frozen then transfer to a Ziploc freezer bag.
