  • Preparation Time:



  • 3 c flour
  • 4 t baking powder
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 t cream of tartar
  • 3/4 c butter, chopped
  • 1 1/4 c buttermilk (or 1 c milk)


  • Mix everything but buttermilk. Make a crater in the mixture. Add buttermilk all at once. Stir until just moistened. Do not overstir.
  • Form biscuits. The less handling of the dough, the better (overhandling makes tough biscuits). I just make a lump on the floured surface and press it out with my fingertips until it's a nice thickness, about two fingers high.
  • Bake biscuits at 450 for 10-12 minutes, until golden.
  • For a variation, add 1/4 c whipping or heavy cream and make drop biscuits instead of formed biscuits.
