Homemade Biscuits

Homemade Biscuits

Homemade biscuits are pretty traditional fare in my family.  I actually love canned biscuits, but I don’t have them in the refrigerator very often.   Biscuits are perfect anytime, of course with gravy, with butter and honey, with fried chicken…..the list goes on and on.  You’ll be surprised how quick and easy they are!

Homemade Biscuits


3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cold butter

1 – 1 1/2 cups milk

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a large bowl, add flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder, stirring until well combined.  Cut butter into flour until butter is about pea size.  Add milk and stir until a soft dough is formed.  Pour onto a floured surface and knead 5 or 6 times.  Flatten dough into a circle about 3/4″ thick.  Use a biscuit cutter or small glass to cut biscuits.  Be careful to press the cutter straight down and do not turn, it will keep the biscuits from rising properly.  Place biscuits onto a greased baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned.
