Sweetpea’s Biscuits

Simple baking powder biscuits, gently kneaded into the fluffiest biscuits, ever!


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk (see notes!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking powder together.
  3. Add your cold butter, and using a gentle “snapping” motion, cut butter into flour until small pieces form.
  4. Add the cold buttermilk, and fold dough on itself over and over until combined.
  5. Dump out onto a floured work surface, and press out until 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Cut into 2″ squares, placing on sheet tray. Make sure the biscuits touch each other.
  7. Bake at 450˚ until golden brown, about 15 minutes, depending on your oven. I like to set my timer for 12 minutes, then starting peeking.
  8. Serve hot out of the oven with plenty of extra butter, jam, honey, preserves, etc!


  • If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, add a splash of white vinegar, and wait a few minutes.
  • If you’re feeling frisky, you can coat the biscuits with melted butter before you bake them.
  • You can freeze the biscuits, before you bake them. I place them 1″ apart on a sheet tray and flash freeze. Then, dump into a freezer safe bag and pull out however many I need at the time. Bake frozen biscuits the same way as above.
