There’s something undeniably comforting about homemade biscuits. Maybe it’s the way they fill the kitchen with a warm, inviting aroma or how they offer a flaky, buttery bite that store-bought varieties just can’t match. So for your next breakfast indulgence, here’s the perfect recipe to guide you.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
- 3/4 cup milk or buttermilk
- Start by preheating your oven to a hot 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
- In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Pour in the milk or buttermilk and stir until just combined.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times. Roll it out to about 1-inch thickness, then use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out the biscuits. Reform the scrap dough and continue cutting until all the dough is used.
- Place the biscuits on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.
