Homemade Biscuits

  • 2 cups White Lily's Self-Rising flour | sub all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter | keep as cold as possible
  • 3/4 - 1 cup whole fat buttermilk | sub low fat buttermilk or whole milk


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt for the biscuits.
  3. Cut the stick of cold butter into cubes. Using a pastry blender or your hands cut or mush the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles gravel.
  4. Pour in 3/4 cup of buttermilk and stir until a dough starts to form. Add an additional 1/4 cup of buttermilk if the mixture is too dry.
  5. Dump the dough onto a heavily floured surface and knead it slightly until it holds together. (Feel free to sprinkle on more flour if it is too sticky).
  6. Flatten the dough into a 1/2 inch thick disc, cut out your biscuits and place them onto a lined baking sheet with the edges touching.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
