Chilling Time20 min

Cooking Time12 min

Cooking MethodOven


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Sift the dry ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or with two knives until a coarse meal texture is obtained.

  3. Add buttermilk and knead lightly but thoroughly. The dough should be soft but not sticky. If it is, add a little more flour.

  4. Knead for 1 minute, wrap in foil or wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

  5. Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. If you don't have one, a drinking glass of the desired diameter will work.

  6. Transfer biscuits to a dark baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.

It wouldn't be hard to make better biscuits than KFC's! Their biscuits are horrible because they become gummy as you chew them, and I'm sure that's not how the Colonel made them! Now Popeye's Chicken and biscuits are good!
