A good biscuit recipe is a must, especially if you live in the south. I love a good biscuit in the morning for breakfast, by itself fresh out of the oven, or paired with a good soup for dinner. They are one of my favorite staple foods. I like them with butter, honey, or jam. I also enjoy them with sausage or with gravy. There are a million ways to eat biscuits! If you live in the south, you probably like them with chicken. This recipe is simple and will yield delicious fluffy biscuits!


2 c. Flour

7 tsp. Baking Powder

2 tsp. Sugar

½ tsp. Cream of Tartar

½ tsp. Salt

½ c. Salted Butter

¾ c. Buttermilk

Bake 450°F for 10-12 minutes


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

2. In a mixing bowl combine the Flour, Sugar, Cream of Tartar, and the Salt. Stir these ingredients together.

3. Add the softened butter and cut it in with a fork or a pie cutter. You don’t want the butter to be completely mixed in, but in small chunks. See the picture for a good idea. You want it to be crumbly.

4. Add the buttermilk and stir it together. Stir it until it forms a ball, then knead the ball of dough a couple of times to make sure it is mixed. You do NOT want to over-knead the dough. It will make it more tough, and then the biscuits won’t be as light.

5. Flour a surface and roll the dough out. Don’t roll it thin. It needs to be at least ½ inch thick, but I like it to be about ¾ to 1 inch thick.

6. Cut the biscuits out with a round cookie cutter or a cup will even work. You could also cut them in squares if you want to save on time.

7. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and spread them out so they aren’t touching each other.

8. Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown on top. Butter the tops.

9. Serve and enjoy!
