Our easy buttermilk biscuits take only a few minutes to mix and less than 15 minutes to bake. They’re so delicious you’ll want to make an extra batch!

We love using buttermilk to make our biscuits special. Most people mistakenly think it contains butter because of its name. In reality, it contains no butter at all! The fat has actually been removed to make butter. Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk and easier to digest. It’s slightly thicker and more sour than milk, adding a wonderful texture and flavor to our buttermilk biscuits.

These biscuits are equally delicious with or without jam.
