Scratch Made Buttermilk Biscuits

I grew up on Biscuits! We had them for breakfast, lunch, supper, snacks. It was a filling little handful of love that didn’t break the bank and stuck to your ribs. ( I think they are still stuck, whew) Granny made these and yeast rolls, which around here we call Light Rolls, all the time and I have yet to master those ( she could do it blind folded) but the buttermilk? Well… that’s just easy peasy! She cut them by hand with a pastry cutter, but I use a food processor… it’s a brave new world let me tell ya!

You’ll Need:

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1-1/2 sticks  VERY Cold Unsalted Butter…Cut Into Pieces
  • 1-1/4 cup Buttermilk

Recipe for homemade buttermilk ( which is all I ever use)

1 cup of milk

1 tablespoon vinegar

Mix together and let sit 5 minutes! TADA!! Buttermilk!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Add flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl of your food processor…Add butter pieces and pulse until butter is completely cut into the flour mixture… While pulsing ..drizzle in the buttermilk until dough just comes together and is no longer crumbly.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about a 1/2 inch thick and cut with a round cookie cutter ( work super fast so that the butter does not completely melt) add to a sheet pan and bake for 15-17 minutes, should be light golden brown.

I brush the tops with a bit of melted butter as soon as I take them out. Let sit about 5 minutes before serving.

The flour, baking powder and salt!


Super Cold Butter, I cut it and then stick in freezer for about five minutes!


This is what is should look like after you’ve pulsed your heart out!


I round it up just enough to roll it, don’t over work it.. you don’t want it getting warm.


trick: stick the rolling pin in the freezer until you are ready to use it, helps with keeping it cool. I got all kinds-a tips huh!?
