Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • cup cold butter
  • 2 cups milk


  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead until dough becomes elastic and soft, about 15 times.
  • Roll out dough to 1" thickness and cut into circles.

You can skip the kneading and cutting steps and drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto baking sheet for drop biscuits.

I mix together all the dry ingredients first, then add the wet ingredients. You get better results if you use cold butter like the recipe calls for, but sometimes I’m in a hurry and the cold butter doesn’t stir in very well, so I’ll melt it a little to make mixing easier. The resulting dough should be a little sticky.


For the extra quick version, you can just drop the dough by rounded spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 425°.

Here’s what the drop biscuit version looks like:

If you want the prettier version, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead about 15 times.


Then, roll the dough out to a 1-inch thickness. Use something round (I use a mason jar lid) to cut your biscuits out. Lay the biscuits on a greased cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes at 425°. Finished biscuits should be golden colored on the top.


For extreme prettiness, you can brush the biscuits with melted butter before setting them out. These are best eaten hot and fresh from the oven!
