Farmhouse Buttermilk Biscuits

Recipe by kitchen_mom
READY IN: 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, and sugar.
  • Cut butter into pieces, then cut into flour mixture. Real butter is very hard, and I found that it was much easier to use my fingers to squeeze the butter into the flour.
  • When the mixture is well combined and crumbly, make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk.
  • Using a fork, stir, starting at the outside of the bowl and blending inward.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead a few times, just until the dough is completely combined and holds together well.
  • With a rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter.
  • Grease a cookie sheet with crisco and place the biscuits 1-2 inches apart on the sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.
