Prep Time:
Bake: 11 Minutes


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened and cubed*
  • 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter


  1. 1. Cut softened butter into flour with a pastry blender or 2 forks just until butter cubes are coated with flour. Using your hands, gently combine until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork just until blended. (Mixture will be wet.)
  2. 2. Turn dough out onto a generously floured surface, and pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a well-floured 2-inch round cutter, and place on lightly greased baking sheets.
  3. 3. Bake at 450° for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, and brush warm biscuits with melted butter. Serve immediately.
  4. *1/3 cup shortening may be substituted.
  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used White Lily Self Rising Flour.
  6. Easy Cheddar Biscuits: Add 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese to butter and flour mixture just before adding buttermilk. Proceed as directed.
