Tips or Notes:

  • Handle the biscuit dough gently to ensure tender biscuits. Overworking the dough can make them tough.
  • To achieve tall, fluffy biscuits, use very cold butter and avoid over-mixing the dough.
  • Biscuits are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, but you can store leftovers in an airtight container and reheat them in the oven or toaster.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I freeze biscuit dough for later use?

Yes, you can freeze biscuit dough for future use. Shape 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.

Can I use buttermilk instead of regular milk in this recipe?

Yes, buttermilk can be used for a slight tangy flavor and added tenderness in the biscuits. Simply substitute an equal amount of buttermilk for the regular milk in the recipe.

  • 2 cups 2 all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon 1 baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

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

  • 3/4 cup 3/4 milk (whole milk for richer biscuits)

  • 2 tablespoons 2 melted butter (for brushing on top)


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. It’s okay to have some larger pea-sized pieces of butter.
  • Pour the milk into the mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix; the dough should be slightly sticky.
  • Turn the biscuit dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently fold it over itself a few times to bring it together.
  • Pat the dough into a rectangle or circle, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  • Use a round biscuit cutter or a sharp-edged glass to cut out biscuits. Press straight down without twisting to ensure even rising.
  • Place the cut biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each.
  • Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and have risen.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve and savor the time-tested comfort of Grandma’s Homemade Biscuits!
