Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

Warm Southern Buttermilk Biscuits make any day of the week that much more delicious.

While I have a simple, yet delicious biscuit recipe already on Bakes In Slippers, this recipe does require the use of your mixer. Ingredients are pretty much the same in my Southern Buttermilk Biscuits as the Wooden Spoon version, this one has more butter (which is fine by me!)

Buttermilk for biscuits

Many people do not want to tackle baking because they are worried about mess-ups, mistakes or over-mixing – this recipe is easy as pie, and will make you the champion biscuit maker in the house. Slather some honey or jam on a warm biscuit, and you can call it a day.

Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 T unsalted butter (I use Plugra) cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat
  3. Combine dry ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer and turn on low speed
  4. Add butter and mix until mixture resembles small peas/coarse meal on medium speed
  5. Turn back to low and slowly add the buttermilk and mix until just combined
  6. Mixture will be wet, so coat your hands with flour and turn out dough onto a well floured surface
  7. Roll gently with a rolling pin into ½ - 1 inch thick dough
  8. Fold dough one time each way gently and roll out to ½ inch thickness
  9. Use a round cutter to cut dough and lay onto baking sheets 1 inch apart
  10. Scrap dough can be rolled together to make additional biscuits
  11. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 10-13 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown
  12. Brush with melted butter if desired
  13. Serve warm
  14. Leftovers can be wrapped in plastic wrap and kept at room temp for three days
  15. You can also freeze leftover biscuits and keep in the freezer for three months
