Grandma's Homemade Biscuit Recipe

Homemade BiscuitHomemade Biscuit Recipe

Nothing beats the deliciousness of freshly made homemade biscuits! Fragrant, buttery, and flaky, these treats are sure to satisfy any craving.

The key to making a perfect biscuit is using cold ingredients like butter and buttermilk so that when they hit the hot oven they flake apart as they cook. There's something special about a freshly baked biscuit that can't be replicated with store-bought versions. Whether you slather them in honey or top them with gravy, homemade biscuits will make your meal delicious!

This homemade biscuit recipe is my personal favorite and when I prepare them they look feel, and taste just like Grandma's.  In my opinion, if your serving any type of meat such as country ham, bacon, or sausage, no breakfast meal is complete without baking up some fresh homemade biscuits.  

How do you like you eat your biscuits?  Sometimes I will simple pour some syrup over my biscuits and eat them that way.  Other times I'll eat biscuits straight out of the oven while they're still good and hot.  When I have time to eat a full breakfast, I just split my biscuit open and add my favorite toppings like butter and jelly.  

On my lazy mornings I usually just make myself a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. You could also substitute either ham or bacon for the sausage.  

Here is the biscuit recipe.
