How to make homemade biscuits

My family loves biscuits! We seriously do, especially when we make our crock pot chicken pot pie recipe or our turkey chili.

Our kids love to have some biscuits. Biscuits are so easy to make so there really is so reason not to make them at home.

Plus they are frugal to make. You can make them at home for a fraction of the store bought cost. Have I mentioned that they taste better than store bought?

These are really just the best and oh so tasty!

Let’s get started making easy homemade biscuits!

Preheat your own and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In food processor, combine flour, corn starch, baking powder, and salt.  Pulse to combine.

Next, add in the cold butter in  4 – 5 chunks.  Pulse a few seconds until the flour looks crumbly and the butter is evenly distributed in small lumps throughout the flour mixture.

TIPS in the food processor: If the dough is too wet and doesn’t stay lumped together add 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour and pulse.  Repeat until dough is solid enough to handle.  If dough is too dry, add 1 teaspoon of water and pulse.  Repeat adding tiny amounts of water until all the dough sticks together in a ball.

Remove from bowl onto rolling surface that is lightly covered with corn starch.  Knead the dough a few times turning it over onto itself and turning about 6 – 10 times.

These are the best homemade biscuits!

Once you try southern homemade biscuits, you won’t ever go back to store bought again. If you are short on time, try making homemade drop biscuits.

However you make these, they are going to make great. Just make sure to have cold butter and that also makes it easier to work the butter into the flour and work the dough. You can use a pastry cutter if you have one.

How to make biscuits at home by hand:

You an easily make these by hand too.

Preheat oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, corn starch, baking powder, and salt.  Stir to combine.

Add in the cold butter in  4 – 5 chunks.  Use a fork to blend the butter into the flour until the mixture looks crumbly and the butter is evenly distributed in small lumps throughout the flour mixture.  This should take a few minutes to make sure there are no large clumps remaining.

In a separate small bowl, mix the yogurt, cream, milk, and egg.  Stir to combine.

Stir the wet mixture into the flour mixture until dough ball forms and gathers along the side of the bowl.  If it’s a little wet and doesn’t hold a ball shape you can add about a tablespoon of flour and stir to see if it holds together better.  If the mixture is too dry and doesn’t come together, you can add a teaspoon of milk and stir again.

Remove from bowl onto rolling surface that is lightly covered with corn starch.  Knead the dough a few times turning it over onto itself and turning about 6 – 10 times.

What is the best flour for biscuits?

All purpose flour is our go to flour to use for biscuits. They turn out wonderful every time.

How do you make fluffy biscuits?

It is important to make sure the butter is very cold when you mix it into the flour and other ingredients. Cold butter will ensure your biscuits are soft and fluffy.

Why do my biscuits crumble?

Too much shortening will make your biscuits crumble.  You also want to make sure the butter is still cold in the mixture when they go into the oven.

We have even learned how to make biscuits without milk when we were out and I didn’t know. I do think that the milk makes the biscuits more flavorful though.
