Cracker Barrel Like Biscuits! Really!

“I have been on a quest to discover the secret to Craker Barrel's perfect biscuits. There are several recipes out there that claim to be like Cracker Barrel's. I have tried them all, and they all fall short. Finally, through much trial and error, and a combination of the many other recipes I've used, I have created a recipe that is about as close as you could hope to come!!!!”
16 Biscuits

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. SIFT (this is important!) together the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
  3. Cut in the butter and then stir in the milk until the dough comes together.
  4. Divide the dough in half, and then each half in half again. Continue doing this until you have 32 small, roughly-equal, portions. Roll these into balls. Take two balls at a time and press them together into one disk. (This is what allows the biscuits to separate nicely for buttering!) Don't press them too flat, they should be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Keep doing this until you have 16 disks. Place them on a ungreased cookie sheet, sides touching. Brush lightly with beaten egg white.
  5. Bake 8 - 10 minutes, depending on how dark you like them. 9 minutes works for me.
  6. When they come out, immediately brush them generously with melted butter.
  7. Eat some right away! They are SO good fresh from the oven! Enjoy!
