There are only four ingredients in these Easy Buttermilk Drop Biscuits. You will not need a rolling pin to make these biscuits. Stop buying the box mix when these are this easy and taste so much better. You can drizzle them with honey, slather them with butter or ladle Sausage Gravy on top. Whatever you decide, they will taste amazing!

I made these Buttermilk Biscuits in a cooking class that I took. We worked in groups of two and the class went pretty fast so taking pictures was difficult. Luckily my partner was very understanding so I did get a few quick pictures of the steps for you.

Our instructor was Chef Christal Jakopak.

Chef Jakopak prepped a lot of the food before

the class to save time so my posts from the

class will be a little different than I usually do.

Slowly cut the butter into the flour

using a pastry blender or two knives

until small pea size balls form.

Due to the class size we had to use our
hands as there were not enough
pastry blenders to go around.

Gradually add the buttermilk, a little at a time,

and combine with your hands until a large

ball of dough can be formed. The mixture

should be a little sticky.

Divide the dough into six equal pieces

and roll them into balls. Drop the dough

onto a baking sheet that has been either

lined with parchment paper or greased.

The picture is a large baking sheet

with three recipes of the biscuits

for the purpose of the class.

Bake in a preheated preheated 425 degree

oven for about 15-20 minutes or until

the tops are golden brown. Immediately

brush with the melted butter.

We took ours out just before they browned so we

could take them home, brown them and eat them hot.

  1. One of my favorite quick recipes is for drop biscuits like my mother used to make. Real comfort food. I think I’ll try this recipe the next time I have buttermilk on hand. I found it interesting that this dough is formed into balls and then the balls are dropped on the baking sheet.
