GREAT biscuit recipe. This is a copycat for Popeye's buttermilk biscuits. Please don't use salted butter in this recipe (or, indeed, in any of your baking). From www.TopSecretRecipes.com

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  3. Slice cold butter into cubes and use a pastry knife or potato masher to cut butter into dry mixture until no large chunks of butter remain.
  4. Add buttermilk and milk and stir with a spoon until dough forms.
  5. Roll out to 1/2-inch thick on a floured surface.
  6. Cut biscuits with a 3-inch biscuit cutter and arrange on a lightly-greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes or until tops begin to turn light brown.
  8. Remove biscuits from the oven and cool for a couple of minutes, then brush each biscuit top with melted butter.

Excellent recipe. Very easy to make, they were fluffy and light and browned beautifully. I should have made a double batch.

O my goodness. A while back I was looking for the best biscuit recipe. Now I have found it. These are so good. Very buttery. I did not have any buttermilk, so I used all milk. This will for now on be my biscuit recipe. I will not have to search no longer. Thanks.

Nice flavor biscuits. Very easy to make. If you only have salted butter like me, cut the salt to 3/4 teaspoon otherwise it will be salty. I only needed 18 minutes in the oven and they were a bit too brown already. So, watch your baking time.
