Buttermilk biscuits in 15 minutes

Buttermilk biscuits in 15 minutes

There’s really not much to making buttermilk biscuits, and they make a great breakfast by themselves or with eggs. You probably have all the ingredient on hand. If you don’t have any buttermilk, you can make your own in 5 minutes using milk and lemon juice or vinegar, as they show here.

To make your biscuits, heat your oven to 450° F, and mix up the dough while the oven heats.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening or butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a medium bowl.


2. Add the shortening and cut in with a pastry blender or two forks.

3. Add the buttermilk and mix briefly with a fork.

4. Combine the down better using your hands.

5. Roll out the down about ¾ inch thick.
