Mom's Southern Homemade Simple Biscuits

I grew up loving my mother's homemade biscuits, so I thought I would share the recipe here! They are very simple to make and go great with breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix all ingredients well. If dough seems dry, add a little bit extra milk until mixes well.
  3. Place dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet in biscuit shapes. My mother didn't even shape them; she would just put globs of dough down and they would be irregular shapes.
  4. Lightly dust flour on the top of the biscuits.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Perfect for what I needed. These biscuits are dirt-cheap to make, ingredient-minimalistic, and pleasantly palatable. I drowned the results in butter. Delicious. Note: My mom used to make these, too.
