The Best Biscuit Recipe

When Derek and I moved to North Carolina (seven years ago this month!), I felt this obligation to get really invested into the southern culture and cuisine. My first introduction to southern cooking was biscuit making. This was the first recipe we ever tried, nailed it on the first batch and have been making them regularly ever since.

I've used these as a side for soups, salads, and other light meals. I've also made them as part of our chicken biscuit pot pie, and countless other times for biscuits and sausage gravy. They're probably the easiest biscuits you can make, and are our go-to when we need a side dish in a hurry.

If you need a simple six ingredient homemade biscuit recipe that takes less than 30 minutes. I've got you covered.

Ingredients:
2 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon White Sugar
1/3 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Milk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425ยบ

Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Then add milk and shortening into the flour mixture. Using an electric mixer, mix the ingredients together until well combined.

Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Using your hands, gently pat the biscuit dough out into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, or the open side of a glass, cut out the biscuits. Gather up any remaining dough, and repeat the process until the dough is gone.

Place your biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes. Serve warm.

  1. Interesting... these look like what we call Scones in England and we have it with jam and clotted cream. I wonder if they are one of the same. Can the 'shortening' be substituted with butter?

    1. Yes! Same thing! We just have different names for some baked goods in the US! You can definitely use butter in this recipe instead of shortening!
