There’s nothing like the taste of a warm, buttery homemade biscuit straight out of the oven. Without a doubt, homemade biscuits are far superior in taste and texture compared to store-bought ones.
One of the reasons for this is that you can control the freshness and quality of ingredients when making biscuits at home. Fresh flour, baking powder, and butter make all the difference in achieving that perfect flaky texture.
Another advantage of making biscuits from scratch is the ability to customize them to your liking. Add some cheddar cheese and chopped jalapeños for a savory kick, or stir in cinnamon and sugar for a sweet treat.
However, let’s not forget about the satisfaction that comes from making something with your own hands. Kneading the dough and cutting the biscuits can be a relaxing and rewarding experience. And the aroma of freshly baked biscuits filling your kitchen is simply divine.
So next time you’re craving a biscuit, skip the store and try making them at home. Your taste buds will thank you.
3 Ingredient Homemade Biscuits
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup butter cold cut into pea-sized cubes
- 6 tablespoons milk plus more if needed
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- In a large bowl, combine flour and butter. Using a pastry cutter, a fork, or 2 knives, cut in butter until a coarse meal develops and butter is evenly distributed.
- Add milk and stir until a soft dough forms. If the dough is sticky, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. If the dough is dry, add more milk 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 20 seconds, adding flour if the dough becomes sticky.
- Roll out to 1/2-inch thick and cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Press together the uncut dough and continue rolling and cutting biscuits.
- Bake until lightly golden brown on top and fragrant, about 10 to 12 minutes.
