Homemade buttermilk Biscuits in a bowl - J Dub By Design™

J Dub’s Buttermilk Biscuits


  • 2 cups (240 grams) all purpose flour

  • 1 T baking powder

  • 1/4 t baking soda

  • 2 t sugar

  • 6 T (85 grams) cold butter, cubed and chilled

  • 2 T butter, melted

  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) cold buttermilk, chilled


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat.
  3. In a food processor or using a whisk, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar until combined.
  4. Add the chilled, cubed butter and pulse food processor to create pea sized pieces of butter.
  5. Pour in the cold buttermilk and pulse until dough starts to come together.
  6. Scoop the dough out onto a floured surface and push it together with your hands.
  7. Shape the dough into a rectangle and fold it into thirds,
  8. Turn the dough and flatten back into a rectoangle.
  9. Repeat this process two additional times.
  10. Next flatten the dough into a 1/2 inch rectangle.
  11. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits. This should make 12 biscuits.
  12. You can continue to gather the dough together at 1/2 inch thickness and cut the biscuits. But, try to do this sparingly as the dough will start to toughen. I can usually get 10 biscuits before combining the dough pieces together, before flattening and rolling out again.
  13. Arrange the biscuits on the parchment paper or a silicone mat so that they are touching each other.
  14. Bake for about 5 minutes and remove them from the oven.
  15. Brush the tops with melted butter and return to the oven for another 10-12 minutes.
  16. Remove from oven and brush the tops with any remaining butter.


  1. If you don’t have access to a food processor, you can use a pastry cutter to blend the dough.
  2. After cutting your butter in cubes, place in the freezer for a few minutes while you prep your other ingredients. This will ensure your butter stays cold.
  3. Measure out your buttermilk and leave it in the fridge until you are ready to add it to the ingredients.
  4. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, add 1 teaspoon white vinegar to 3/4 cup regular milk and allow to sit 5 minutes. Chill and then add this to the flour mixture.
