Butter Buttermilk Biscuits – Making these biscuits from scratch is so much easier than you’d think. All it takes is seven simple ingredients and a little elbow grease — just a little!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

How To Make Butter Buttermilk Biscuits

Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently a few times. Pat the dough out into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can and place them on a baking sheet. Gather the scraps and pat them out again, cutting out additional biscuits until all the dough has been used.
Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Serve warm. Enjoy!


In conclusion, these homemade buttermilk biscuits are a true labor of love, and they’ll fill your home with a warm, comforting aroma as they bake. Whether you slather them with butter and jam for breakfast or serve them alongside your favorite dinner, these biscuits are bound to be a hit with family and friends. We hope you enjoy making and savoring these delicious treats as much as we do!
