Great Online BISCUIT Exchange Extravaganza

I'm not Southern - but my mom and her family are.  I learned to make biscuits the hard way - hand kneading, very persnickety recipes...  Then I found this.  And they are sooooo simple, and sooooo good - no persnicketiness at all, and work in my KitchenAid.
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 scant tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter
1 cup whole buttermilk.
1. Preheat oven to 425. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into pats and add to flour, mix until crumbly. Add buttermilk and mix  until it forms a rough ball.  Add more flour until dough is rough and sticky.
2. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and pat it down into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. 
3. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting; this crimps the edges of the biscuit and impedes its rise.
4. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.
Thank you AGAIN this year Jz!!!!!!  

And here are the others.......


  1. Thank you so much!!! My Sweetie loves home made biscuits, and i just don't make them often enough (his mama was one of those cooks, you know, learned to make biscuits on the wood burning stove!), so i need an easy way to do it. Bless you for sharing this!

  2. Biscuits are lots more challenging than one might think... Thank You! for an easier way to an authentic taste!
    (And, you know, for just being YOU!)

    Many shoulder bumps to you, my stalwart blogging friend.

  3. Ohhhh... Buttermilk biscuits are SO yummy! These look delicious! :)

  4. At first I thought you were British... they call cookies biscuits but then it got even better! Thank you for this recipe! My Southern grandmother served biscuits with every meal and I've never been brave enough to try making them, but this sounds doable. So fun exchanging with you! Happy Holidays!

  5. Hoss has asked me to find a good recipe for biscuits, so I will definitely be trying this one!
