Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits

gomemade buttermilk biscuits are a timeless classic, perfect for breakfast or as a side to any meal. These biscuits are wonderfully fluffy, with a golden-brown crust that's brushed with melted butter for an extra touch of deliciousness. They're simple to make and oh-so-satisfying to eat!


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • About 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and a pinch of salt. Add the shortening and cut it into the flour using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  2. Add Buttermilk: Gradually add the buttermilk to the flour mixture, stirring gently until a soft dough forms. The dough should be moist but not too sticky.

  3. Flour Your Surface: Generously flour your work surface. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface and knead it gently a few times until it comes together.

  4. Cut Out Biscuits: Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or a round glass to cut out biscuits. Re-roll the scraps and cut out additional biscuits until all the dough is used.

  5. Bake: Place the biscuits on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.

  6. Brush with Butter: Once out of the oven, brush the hot biscuits with melted butter.

  7. Serve: Enjoy these fluffy homemade buttermilk biscuits warm, straight from the oven. They’re perfect on their own or with a dollop of your favorite jam.

Enjoy the comforting taste of homemade buttermilk biscuits, a perfect addition to any meal!
