Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe. Nothing tastes better than hot biscuits right out of the oven smothered with butter and honey. The great thing is it takes about a half an hour to make a batch.


cake flour 1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups
cream of tartar 1 Tbsp
baking soda 1 1/2 tsps
salt 3/4 tsp
butter 3/4 cup cut into 1/2 inch cubes and pinched
buttermilk 1 1/4 cups


  1. In a large bowl combine the cake flour, all-purpose flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Combine all the dry ingredients using a mixer.
  2. Add the butter cubes and continue to mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the butter milk.
  4. Dust your hands and a surface you can roll out the dough with all purpose flour. Knead the dough into a large ball.
  5. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 3/4 inch.
  6. Cut out the biscuits using a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter and place them on a baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  7. Combine the left over dough and roll it out to cut out more biscuits.
  8. Heat your oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15 minutes until they are golden brown.


1 batch makes 12 biscuits.
The dough is extremely sticky so before you begin to handle it make sure your hands are completely covered with flour. This makes working with the dough easier.
