The best biscuits you will ever eat!


Sunday is a day for biscuits in our home. And these will blow your mind. Have you ever actually read the ingredients in processed biscuits? Enough said. These are super easy to make and I guarantee you already have the ingredients in your home.


I buy bulk whole grain, unbleached flour from Costco. However, often times I will grind my own wheatberries and use a combination of fresh milled flour, whole grain flour, etc. The possibilities are endless. Using whole grain, high quality flour works best.


It is also vital to use a high quality butter. Cheap butter creates a synthetic taste. Maybe it is just me!? Give these a try. Add fresh herbs or garlic for a savory biscuit. I’ve added more sugar and cinnamon too for a sweeter biscuit. This base recipe is fantastic alone, or modified for whatever you’re whipping up!


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
  • 3 tsp baking powder (I only buy high quality baking powder. REPEAT: high quality baking powder)
  • 5 TBSP butter (slightly softened, but works well a little firm to create wonderful pockets of buttery goodness)
  • 3/4 cup milk (the original recipe called for 1/4 cup powdered milk and 3/4 cup water). I simply use 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 TBSP sugar

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients and cut in butter. Add wet ingredients. Roll dough onto a floured surface. Use a mason jar lid or biscuit cutter. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes. Top should be slightly brown. They bake quickly, so do not overbake! I like to brush a little melted butter on top. Spread on some homemade strawberry jam and guzzle a pot of coffee. Done and done.

    Could I use a non-dairy milk for this recipe? Also, what is considered a “high quality ” baking soda? I buy Bob Mills.
    Thanks for you input ????

      Hi Stacey!
      High quality would be name brand or trusted brand. This is just personal preference and some are not sensitive to the bitter aftertaste some baking soda brands impart. Stuff that’s been lingering around for a while, never works out as well for me. I’ve used cheaper versions that were still shelf stable, but had a really bitter taste. Bob Mills is a trusted brand, Calumet and I’m stuck on Clabber Girl at the moment:) Keep cracking!

      Also, you could probably use a non-dairy in place of the dairy milk just as easily and have similar results. Let us know how they turn out! I have yet to try the non-dairy version of these!

    Define “high-quality baking powder.” My grandmother’s idea of high-quality was Calumet…

      Hi! I guess I should clarify. In my mind, trusted brands like Calumet, Clabber Girl and Bob Mills work very well and I’ve used all of these. I bought a store brand baking powder twice now and it had a horribly bitter aftertaste. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
