Buttery Biscuits

Buttery, flaky and made completely from scratch, these easy homemade biscuits deserves a permanent place in your recipe repertoire. Perfect for people who love bread (but can’t finish a loaf like myself). I like to make this at the beginning of the week and use them to make an egg breakfast sandwich, but these are also great to have in place for dinner rolls.

These biscuits require only a handful of ingredients and the ingredients are those that you most likely have in your kitchen pantry. I love this recipe too because it doesn’t require any time for the dough to rise, because the leavening agent (baking powder) does all the work while it cooks. The secret to making these biscuits flaky is butter! You’ll want to make this recipe over and over again because it’s just that good!

8 servings / 10 mins prep / 25 mins total time


2 cups flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp sugar

½ tsp salt

¼ cup + 2 tbsp cold salted butter

¾ cup milk


Preheat oven to 425 °F.

In a medium sized bowl add the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and give it a gentle mix.

Using a cheese grater, grate the butter into the dry ingredients. Combine the butter with the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the milk and mix until combined and the dough is cohesive.

Transfer the biscuit dough to a well-floured surface and using a rolling pin to flatten the dough to 1” thick. Using a cup (or biscuit cutter), press straight down into the dough and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Repeat until you have 8 biscuits. Bake for 12 mins or until the tops are golden brown.

Allow to cool completely. Enjoy!
