Why You’ll Love This Biscuit Recipe:

If you love homemade bread and fresh dinner rolls, but don’t like to wait for them to rise and proof, this biscuit recipe is for you. They’re perfect for any cooking skill level and taste way better than store-bought biscuits out of a can.

  • No rising time
  • Simple ingredients
  • The dough comes together fast
  • Fail-proof and forgiving
  • Make-ahead

Ingredients for Homemade Biscuits:

  • Flour – all-purpose flour works best.
  • Baking Powder – use aluminum-free and make sure to sift if you see clumps in your baking powder.
  • Salt and sugar – add just the right amount of flavor.
  • Unsalted Butter – be sure it’s cold, right from the refrigerator.
  • Half and Half – this is also called “light cream.” Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Tips for the Best Biscuits:

  • Measure flour correctly – spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level the top. Read our post on how to measure ingredients.
  • Dip your pastry cutter into flour between each cut. This will create a cleaner cut for better rise.
  • Cut Biscuits straight down. Don’t turn your cutter side to side and do not use a sawing motion. Cutting straight down will help the biscuits rise better.
  • Use cold butter. The key to making great biscuits is in using cold butter. We dice up butter and then refrigerate the diced butter. Cold butter will produce the fluffiest layers in your biscuits.
  • Do not over-mix – once liquids touch the flour, mix just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Tools for Making Biscuits:

  • Baking Sheet – line it with a sheet of parchment paper
  • Biscuit Cutter – we used a 2 1/2″ diameter round cutter.
  • Pastry Blender – to cut butter into the flour. You can also use a fork with wide tines, two knives, or a food processor.
  • Mixing Bowl – this dough comes together in 1 bowl (we used a 4 qt).
  • Wooden spoon or spatula – to stir in the liquid ingredients

How to Make Biscuits:

  1. Dice butter. Cut into 1/2″ cubes and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Whisk dry ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk until really well combined before adding butter and liquids.
  3. Add diced butter to the flour mixture and cut it into the flour until the largest pieces are pea-sized. It’s easy with a pastry blender.
  4. Add liquids. Pour in all the half and half at once and stir it in until the dry ingredients are just moistened then transfer to a floured surface. If the dough is too moist, dust the top with flour.
  5. Shape dough into a rectangle, fold in half. Shape into a rectangle again and fold a second time. Shape dough into a 5×10″ rectangle and cut out 8 2 1/2″ diameter circles. You can pull together the scraps to form 2 more biscuits.
  6. Bake. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 450˚F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Brush hot biscuits with melted butter.
step by step how to make biscuit dough

Pro Tip for the Softest Biscuits: Be sure not to overmix the dough so it doesn’t release gluten strands which can cause the biscuits to be tough.

how to cut out biscuits and bake

Common Questions:

Can I substitute the half and half?

Half and half is essentially equal parts of heavy cream and milk. You can substitute by stirring together 1/2 cup cold heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup cold milk.

Do I need to use a biscuit cutter?

If you don’t have a round biscuit cutter, you can use a knife or a bench scraper to cut biscuits into squares. Just be sure to cut straight down and don’t use a back and forth sawing motion.

Can I use salted butter?

We use unsalted butter in all of our baking and cooking since we can control the salt. You can substitute with salted butter and use a little less salt.

Can I use a food processor for biscuits?

To use a food processor, pulse together dry ingredients, then add chilled diced butter and pulse just until the largest pieces are pea-sized. Add just 3/4 cup half and half and pulse only until combined.

Why are my biscuits hard?

Overworking the dough can release gluten strands and cause biscuits to be tough. Also, be sure not to over-bake which can dry out the biscuits.

Serve Biscuits with:

  • Gravy – there’s nothing more classic than biscuits and gravy.
  • Jam – spread sweet jam over biscuits and enjoy them with tea.
  • Honey Butter – we love how butter melts onto a warm biscuit
  • Breakfast Sandwiches – break the biscuit in half and use it for a sandwich.

Make-Ahead:

It’s easy to make biscuits in advance. Cut the biscuits, place them on a baking sheet then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Uncover and bake before serving.

Cuisine: American
Course: Bread, Side Dish
Calories: 212 kcal
Servings: 10 biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder (aluminum free)
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt (we use fine sea salt)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (8 Tbsp, cold)
  • 1 cup half and half (minus 2 Tbsp)*
  • 1/2 Tbsp melted butter to brush the baked biscuits

Instructions

Make the Biscuit Dough:

  1. Dice butter into 1/2" cubes and refrigerate until needed.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Whisk thoroughly.

  3. Add diced cold butter and cut it into the flour using a pastry blender (or two knives or a fork), until the largest butter pieces are pea-sized.

  4. Add 1 cup – minus 2 Tbsp of Half and Half all at once and stir until mixture comes together and is mostly moistened. Do not over-mix.

Fold Dough and Cut Biscuits:

  1. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. If dough is very sticky, lightly sprinkle the top with flour.

  2. Pat dough into a rectangle then fold it in half and pat into another rectangle. Fold a second time and pat into a 5"x10" rectangle or 3/4" thickness. Dip a 2 1/2" round biscuit cutter into flour and cut out 8 biscults. Pull together scraps and form into a rectangle to cut an extra 2 biscuits.

Bake Biscuits:

  1. Place biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet 1-inch apart and bake at 450˚F for 12-15 minutes or until tops are golden brown and biscuits are baked through. While bicuits are hot, brush tops with 1/2 Tbsp melted butter. Transfer to a wire rack to cool 10 minutes then serve.

Recipe Notes

*Notes on half and half – you can substitute with equal parts heavy cream and milk. In very humid climates, reduce the amount of half and a half to 3/4 cup.

    I researched many recipes, but this one just stood out. I have been craving homemade biscuits and so I stumbled on to this one, but I didn’t have milk. Being a cook myself I decided to make them with what I had on hand. I had almond milk and coffee creamer. I substituted the half and half with 1/4 creamer and 3/4 almond milk, had to cut the salt , because my butter has salt as well…needless to say I nailed it! They were the hit of the breakfast table. AWSOME recipe. Thank you.

      Hi Jeffrey, the folding helps to form the layers in the biscuits. Don’t worry about perfection here, just fold the dough over itself. If your dough was too dry, it may have been too much flour and our post on how we measure ingredients may help.

      Hi Ellen, that is true for dinner rolls but not necessarily for biscuits. They should be spaced.

    Natasha, Please be advised that Half & Half and Light Cream are two separate and distinct items. Half & Half is Half Milk and Half Cream,. Light Cream is just light Cream. I’m not sure how it is made light and Heavy Cream is a minimum of 36% Butterfat.

    Two ingredients make the best biscuits ever-not a lot of ingredients necessary to make great biscuits.

    Two cups of light self rising flour like White Lily-two cups of heavy cream.. Knead about 15 times -cut and bake 350 for about 15 minutes.That’s it.

      Hi Anna, to make this ahead, cut the biscuits, place them on a baking sheet then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Uncover and bake before serving.

    Never made biscuits before. Just made these! They were delicious! 15 min was a bit too long for mine as they turned too dark, so next time I’ll try 12 min. Also, I did not have a cutter so I used a cup. They ended up not as pretty but still tasted amazing! I’ll definitely make them again! Thank you for the recipe 😊

    The recipe looks SO good. So I’m scrolling down and pass eyelid warts over and over and get grossed out and I’m not interested in the biscuits anymore. Maybe I should print these pictures out and post eyelid warts on my refrigerator door. That would be a great way to cut back. Lol. I’m kind of kidding around. I love your recipes but there is some truth in the way the eyelid warts make me feel while my mind is all about the biscuits.

      That is funny and not funny at the same time. Weird ads are a product of the January slump for companies that buy ads. I wish they were better quality and we don’t pick them. Lol about putting it on the fridge to cut back. That made me laugh.

    Great recipe, but a trick that I learned is to freeze the butter and grate it with a cheese grater rather than use the pastry cutter. This way the dough does not get overworked and the butter stays cold. My biscuits come out perfect every time.
