Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe

    12 Servings


  • 2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup Buttermilk, cold
  • 1 Egg, cold and slightly beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. If you don’t have parchment paper handy, bake the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients, either using a fork or a pastry cutter, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk and egg and stir until just combined.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough just comes together, making sure not to over work the dough. If the dough is too sticky, gradually add a little flour.
  5. Roll out the dough to about 1-inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a round biscuit cutter.
  6. Place the biscuits on the baking sheet, spacing them 3 inches apart. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with lots of butter.



  • If you have leftover biscuits (is that even a thing?), cut them in half and toast them in the toaster until lightly toasted. Slather with butter.
