“I found this recipe in a newspaper several years ago in a rural Colorado town. I don't remember the name of the paper. My family (kids especially) love weekend mornings when we enjoy these biscuits along with bacon & fruit! Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift dry ingredients together.
  2. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it resembles coarse meal.
  3. Stir in buttermilk untill all ingredients are wet.
  4. Turn onto floured surface, then knead the dough a few times until it's 1/2 inch thick.
  5. Cut into 2 inch rounds & place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Lightly brush tops of biscuits with milk.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven set to 425 for 12-15 minutes, or until tops are golden.
  8. Makes about 10-14 biscuits (depending how thick you like yours!)
  9. Note: It's VERY important to sift the dry ingredients. I tried making this without sifting, & learned it's worth the extra step!
