Perfect Homemade Biscuits

There's not anything pretty like a warm, buttery, flaky biscuit directly from the oven that you can slather with butter and jelly, make right into a biscuit breakfast sandwich, or revel in with sausage gravy. I used to buy the mixes (and I’m positive I'm able to pick up a container in the destiny once more) but with a biscuit recipe this easy, it’s just as easy to make biscuits from scratch.

This smooth biscuit recipe has never failed me and after an awful lot tweaking it is my cross-to biscuit recipe. The biscuits upward thrust up fine and fluffy and the copious amounts of butter ensure a tender, delicious biscuit each and every time.

Perfect Homemade Biscuits


  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. The secret to excellent biscuits is cold butter . Really cold. Many times the biscuit dough gets worked so much that the butter softens before the biscuits even go in the oven. Try cutting the butter into small pieces and stick back in the fridge pulling out only when ready to incorporate into the dough.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. 
  4. Use a pastry cutter to cut cold butter into flour mixture. Don't go too crazy here - you want to see small, pea-sized pieces of butter throughout the dough. 
  5. Add in the milk and egg and mix just until the ingredients are combined. The dough will be sticky but don't keep working it. You should be able to see the butter pieces in the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface. Sprinkle some flour on to the top of dough so it won't stick to your fingers and knead 10-15 times. If the dough is super sticky just sprinkle on some additional flour.
  7. Pat the dough out to 3/4 - 1 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter or glass. I ended up with nine this time but depending on who is snacking on biscuit dough, I can get up to 12 biscuits. 
  8. Place the biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  9. For extra yumminess, brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter
