Homemade Biscuit Recipe

Sharing is Caring

This Homemade Biscuit Recipe makes delicious buttery, flakey biscuit with a quick recipe straight from scratch.

Biscuits are a staple so I have to share a recipe for them. You can make them any time of day and they are always a welcomed addition to any meal. In fact, add some gravy to these and they are a meal. I make mine in a food processor which seems like cheating but even if you do not have one, your hands or a fork will work just fine.

What You’ll Need To Make This Homemade Biscuit Recipe :

2 cups of all purpose flour

¾ cup milk (plus a little more for brushing the top of the biscuits)

3 ½ tsp of baking powder

8 tbsp of salted cold butter cubed

Directions:


Begin by adding the butter, flour, and baking powder into a bowl or food processor. If using the processor, simply pour the milk into the pour spout while pulsing the processor to combine and create your dough. If mixing by hand I suggest using a fork or dough cutter to combine the butter and flour. Then add the milk once the butter is in pea sized bits. Mix with a wooden spoon until the dough ball is formed.

Once the fdough is ready, sprinkle some flour onto a surface and roll out the dough to about ½ inch thick.  I am a use what I have type of girl. I use a knife to cut into squares or a mason jar lid but if you have a biscuit cutter, use that.

Make sure to brush the top of the biscuits with milk before putting them in the oven. Bake at 450 for about 10-12 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden. 

If you try this recipe and love it, I would love it if you would come back and give it 5 stars!
