Martha Stewart's Buttermilk Biscuits

Terri Gibson


Looking for a new biscuit recipe and found a video by Martha Stewart. These biscuits are so fluffy, flaky and light! The key is to not over-mix or over work the dough.

12-16 biscuits
10 Min
20 Min


4 c
all purpose flour
4 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
1 tsp
1 c
cold butter
2 c
1 Tbsp


1Whisk together dry ingredients. (If you'd like to add dill, sage or any other herb or flavoring, now is the time to do it.)
2Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients. Make sure it is well incorporated but still a crumbly mixture.
3Add buttermilk. Stir into the dry ingredients being careful not to beat the dough or over mix it.
4Turn dough out onto a well-floured cutting board and move it around to make it into a very soft, pliable dough. You may knead it only 4-6 times. Remember, don't overwork the dough.
5Pat out to 1" thick and cut out biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch cutter. Place on cookie sheet. (You don't need to grease the cookie sheet, but I did spray mine with butter flavored cooking spray.) Brush milk lightly over top of biscuits.
6Bake at 375* for 18-20 minutes.
