A very versatile recipe!! Biscuits can be given a quick twist with a few extra ingredients. For herbed biscuits, follow the main recipe, and add 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs or 2 teaspoons dried herbs such as rosemary, oregano, thyme or parsley to the flour mixture. For the cheese biscuits, follow the main recipe, add 1 cup grated old cheddar cheese to flour mixture.

At first, I must admit, I was a bit skeptical of this recipe because all of the other recipes I have used so far have included milk. But, tonight, we didn't have any mlik, and I wanted biscuits. Not only are these biscuits easy to make with just a few common ingredients, even if you don't have milk; they are also very easy to make, and they taste surprisingly good - even better than some of the ones with milk! They were very soft and fluffy and had a nice buttery and slightly sweet flavor. I am REALLY glad I found this recipe! Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  2. Using a pastry blender or two forks, cut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course crumbs.
  3. Add water and stir gently, taking care not to overmix, which will toughen the biscuts. The dough will be quite sticky. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and quickly knead 5 or 6 times.
  4. Roll or pat out dough to approximately 1-inch thickness. Cut out using a floured round biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking pan and bake in a preaheated 375F oven for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
