Butter buttermilk biscuits – OH HEAVENS, DON’T DROP THIS

Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Incorporate Butter: Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
  3. Add Buttermilk: Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together.
  4. Knead and Shape: Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently a few times. Pat the dough out into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  5. Cut and Arrange: Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can and place them on a baking sheet. Gather the scraps and pat them out again, cutting out additional biscuits until all the dough has been used.
  6. Bake: Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Serve warm and enjoy the delicious biscuits.


  • Ensure the butter is cold: Cold butter creates flakier biscuits, so it’s important not to let it soften too much before incorporating it into the dough.
  • Handle the dough gently: Overworking the dough can lead to tough biscuits, so handle it as little as possible once the buttermilk is added.
  • Use a sharp biscuit cutter: A sharp cutter will give you clean edges and help the biscuits rise properly in the oven.


  1. Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted?
    Yes, you can use salted butter, but remember to adjust the amount of salt in the recipe accordingly to avoid overly salty biscuits.
  2. Can I freeze the biscuits before baking?
    Yes, you can freeze the unbaked biscuits on a baking sheet until firm, then transfer them to a freezer bag. When ready to bake, place them on a baking sheet and bake from frozen, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.
  3. How do I store leftover biscuits?
    Store leftover biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven for best results.
