Tips or Notes:

  • Use cold, unsalted butter for the best biscuit texture. Grate the butter using a box grater to distribute it evenly in the dough.
  • Handle the biscuit dough gently and avoid overworking it, as this can make the biscuits tough.
  • To achieve tall and fluffy biscuits, be sure to cut them out with a sharp-edged biscuit cutter and avoid twisting it. Press straight down and lift the cutter directly up.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use regular milk instead of buttermilk?

While buttermilk adds a distinct flavor and tenderness to these biscuits, you can create a buttermilk substitute by adding a tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of regular milk. Let it sit for a few minutes before using.

Can I freeze biscuit dough for later use?

Yes, you can freeze biscuit dough for future baking. Form the dough into biscuits, place them on a baking sheet, and freeze until solid. Then, transfer the frozen biscuits to a zip-top bag and store in the freezer. Bake from frozen, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.

  • 2 cups 2 all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon 1 granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon 1 baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and grated

  • 3/4 cup 3/4 buttermilk, cold


  • Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the grated cold butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingertips to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the cold buttermilk and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be shaggy.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead it a couple of times to bring it together, then pat it into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  • Using a sharp-edged biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits by pressing straight down and lifting the cutter directly up. Avoid twisting the cutter.
  • Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between them.
  • Gather any dough scraps, gently pat them together, and cut out more biscuits until you’ve used all the dough.
  • Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and have risen beautifully.
  • Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool slightly on a wire rack.
  • Serve your Southern Buttermilk Biscuits warm with butter, jam, honey, or as a delightful accompaniment to your favorite Southern dishes.
  • Savor the Southern comfort straight from the heart of the South!
