Homemade Biscuits ~

Homemade Biscuits

          Who doesn't love fresh, homemade biscuits? For many Appalachian folk, life just wouldn't be so without biscuits, homemade butter and molasses. They are a time honored treasure you too can enjoy with this simple and delicious recipe! ~


  • 2 cups All Purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 - 6 tbsp real butter or lard
  • 1 cup whole or buttermilk


Thoroughly mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in cold butter/lard and crumble into the dry flour mix. Mix until coarse and very crumbly. Then add 1 cup of cold milk. Mix and knead. Place dough onto floured surface and roll 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Cut biscuits with cutter, or jar or ring. Be sure to straight cut and not twist the biscuits out as that will seal the dough. 

Bake in baking pan or cast iron skillet for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Have the gravy, butter, and molasses ready! Enjoy!~
