BEST Homemade Biscuit Recipe

These biscuits are light, fluffy and so easy to make! Your family will love them!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter, unsalted (Kerry Gold, if you can find it)
  • 1 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
  • Cut in butter, using pastry cutter, until the mixture resembles course meal.  Do NOT over mix!
  • Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. Mix until just combined.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface. 
    Once the dough is manageable, flatten the dough out gently and fold it over itself, pressing it down together again.
    Turn the dough 90 degrees and repeat this process 6 times.
    Again, don't overwork the dough. Resist any temptation to knead.
    Then, press your dough out, with your hands, until it's about 1" thick.
  • Cut biscuits with a biscut cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. 
    Keep making biscuits until all of dough is used. Place on ungreased cookie/baking sheet about three inches apart.
  • Bake for 13 minutes in the pre-heated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
  • Enjoy!!
