Carolina's Buttermilk Biscuits

"This recipe is from an old friend, Carolina, who makes a fabulous biscuit. This is different than my other recipe for buttermilk biscuits because it has the addition of an egg. It has a different taste and texture, but it is equally as good."

Ready In:
10 biscuits




  • Sift dry ingredients together.
  • With a pastry blender, cut cold butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles very coarse breadcrumbs (sort of like fresh bread crumbs).
  • Stir buttermilk into beaten egg and add mixture to flour mixture.
  • Stir quickly, until dough forms a soft ball.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead 5 or 6 times.
  • Let dough rest for a minute, then roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Cut out biscuits using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter.
  • Place biscuits, 1 inch apart, on baking sheet that has been sprayed with Pam.
  • Bake at 400°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. I have been wanting to make biscuits from scratch for the longest time and I am very grateful for this recipe that resulted in great-tasting biscuits and didn't need a lot of time to prepare. My DH almost ate them all! ;)
  2. These were wonderful! Made them to go w/ Chicken Fried Chicken w/milk gravy (#22227)- a great dinner!
  3. I tried these with great expections. They did come out with a decent texture, but they were too sweet to me, for a biscuit to go with a regular meal. I think they would probably be great to use for something like Strawberry Shortcake.
  4. These were very simple. I had never made homemade buscuits before, and was a little nervous, but these turned out great! I served Kittencal's Recipe #258508 I will definitely be making these again!
  5. These were absolutely fantastic. As my husband said as they came out of the oven, "looks likes a biscuit, smells like a biscuit, and mmmmmmmmm tastes like a biscuit!" Thank you for sharing!
