Is making Homemade Biscuits hard?
I get asked all the time, but isn’t making homemade biscuits hard? Absolutely not! This is a great and easy starter recipe for any age or skill level. This was one of the first things I learned to cook from scratch. Over time you can play around with your recipes adding different ingredients creating yummy surprise filled bites. Making this is easy and fast because you don’t use yeast. You don’t need to worry about letting the dough rise or sit, or being nervous about over mixing the dough. All you do is mix the dry ingredients, add in the wet, mix well, drop the homemade biscuits onto a cookie sheet and bake. It’s that easy! They are made from simple ingredients that everyone learning to cook from scratch should have in their pantry. Try starting with our easy homemade biscuits recipe. Once you have that down, try rolling out the dough and cutting biscuit shapes. Our buttermilk recipe is great for that. Best of all have fun, get your hands dirty and enjoy learning to make homemade biscuits from scratch.

Recipes that use Homemade Biscuits
Some of my family favorites are not only delicious but easy! Make up a batch of ooey gooey monkey bread! Try using your dough as dumplings in a big pot of chicken soup. Make sure to drop them into the soup while it’s boiling, then reduce heat and let cook. To make them with a chicken pot pie use them to form a golden crunchy top!
Homemade Biscuits Topping
Like many other recipes homemade biscuits can be served with or with out extra toppings. An easy way to dress things up is with a yummy topping. One easy way is to melt butter and brush on for the last few minutes of baking. Throw in some garlic, chives or parsley flakes to give an added flavor. Another way to make homemade biscuits a hit is to add some cheese and bacon crumbles into the mixture. The oil from the cheese and fat from the bacon give a crispy texture while maintaining a good moisture. Make sure to cook the bacon first!
