How To Make A Light Fluffy Buttery Biscuit

You can make a light, fluffy buttery biscuit at home to serve with any meal. Not only are these wonderful when served as part of a meal, but the fluffy, buttery biscuits make a perfect breakfast or snack treat when served warm with honey or jam. 

Ingredients needed:


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 5 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup cold milk
  1. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Rub the butter into the flour mixture. Use your fingers or a pastry blender to thoroughly work in the butter.
  3. Add the milk gradually. Mix just until blended but do not over mix.
  4. Roll or pat dough to ½ or ¾ inch thick. Cut biscuits with a round biscuit cutter or overturned mug.
  5. Place biscuits on a well buttered baking sheet. Place them close together for fluffier biscuits; farther apart for crisper edges.
  6. Bake in a 450 degree oven for twelve to fifteen minutes. Bake until they are light brown and fluffy.
  7. Serve immediately while biscuits are hot. Leftovers can be reheated gently; however, biscuits are best served fresh.

Serving suggestions for biscuits:

  • Dip in soup or stew.
  • Serve in place of buttered bread with spaghetti.
  • Slice in half and spread with honey or jam.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy.
  • Cut in half and cover with hot baked beans.
  • Place a fried egg in the center of the biscuit.
