Grandma's Buttermilk Biscuits

Terry Appa


I use to stand at the work table where my Grandma would work all her magic.. She made all her doughs in this big wooden bowl. One day I ask why she didn't use another bowl and she told me all that love she used had soaked into that one. And that's the reason why her breads and pastries were so good. It had to be so... they were the best around. Thanks Grandma for the memories.. :)

How to Make Grandma's Buttermilk Biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
    Sift all dry ingredients together
  2. add cold cubed butter, work into dry ingredients with a pastry blender, or your hands I perfer to use my hands adding a little extra love there. work until there are large pea size mixture.
  3. Add buttermilk, when I do this step I use a wooden spoon just until milk is combined. ( dough will be sticky ) Pour out onto a well floured surface. and work just enough to form a ball.
  4. take your rolling pin and whack ( yes wack,just lightly ) in the center of dough and fold in half where the indention is, repeat three more times.
  5. Now roll out to about an inch thick and cut to desired size. place on a lightly greased baking sheet touching so they will rise and not spread.
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes until lightly golden. I brush with melted butter when I take them out of the oven. ( just a little more love :).. ) Allow to rest in pan about 5 mins before serving..
