Homemade Butter Biscuits

Homemade Butter Biscuits

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

½ cup (1 stick) cold butter, grated

1 cup milk


½ tsp rosemary

½ tsp parsley

½ tsp chives

½ tsp thyme


Heat oven to 450͒.

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and herbs (if desired). Mix in butter, then add milk. Stir to combine.

Turn out onto floured surface or silicone pastry mat and kneed a few times to fully incorporate ingredients. Add small amounts of flour or drops of milk as necessary so dough will hold together but not be sticky.

Pat dough to ⅔” thickness and cut with a 2” biscuit cutter or drinking glass.

Place biscuits on greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

  1. First thing I noticed No sugar!.  Is this the complete recipe? 

    They look great. I am looking for my next experiment during this lock down.

    I am checking out a few of the other recipes on your site too.
    Thanks for putting these up. It always good to come across something different.

    A good looking site BTW

    1. There is no sugar.  I know that in many parts of the world, a biscuit is a sweet treat but here in the US, it’s more like a bread.  It’s usually served with the main course of a meal, as you would yeast rolls or bread, although it’s sometimes topped with jam or fruit as a sweet treat.  We do make a sweet version that contains eggs and sugar but we call it a scone.  

      Thank you for taking a look at my site and please let me know how you like the biscuits!
