20 Minute Homemade Biscuits

by on

I call these the 20 Minute Homemade Biscuits… I’ve made these countless times over the years … They are by far one of the quickest bread sides I’ve come across… and they can darn near be added to any meal!  I found these biscuits through allrecipes … and I’ve made them with both butter or shortening and they turn out perfect either way!

We love these biscuits… they melt in your mouth!  Not only that but they take 20 minutes to make from start to finish!!  Sure beats those tubes of biscuits you pick up in the refrigerated section at the grocery store…  How fresh are those??  See any ingredients on the back you can’t even sound out???  And then compare the price for one tube to this recipe… Pennies on the dollar!

Its a win win!!  🙂

      So I have not yet experienced with gluten free… I do how ever have a good friend that comes to town a couple times a month that has eaten gluten free for 3 years now… He asks me for gluten free all the time… So I’m definitely looking into it… I can’t tell ya one way or the other though right now?? I would definitely give it a try if I were you and maybe make some slight changes to keep the texture and consistency similar?!

        GF baking is tricky- I would use a GF baking mix- King Arthur makes a good one now that I can find in Wal Mart. It has the appropriate amount of leaveners (baking soda, salt, etc) as well as Xanthan Gum added, a necessary ingredient when baking GF that lots of GF flours do not have already (it is a binding thing). The trick with baking GF is to let it rest- the grains are much coarser than regular gluten flour, and it takes a while for them to absorb the liquids. The thicker the batter, the longer the rest- ie- cookies should rest at least a couple of hours, up to 24. Cake batter, since the liquid is runnier, should rest about 20 min before you put it in the oven. My guess with biscuits is to let them rest about 30 min in the refrigerator.

        But this is an awesome gluten-full recipe! Thanks!

      I just made these using self-rising flour and baking powder, came out fine! Kids loved it; they asked if I was trying to copy Cracker Barrel, lol! I made buttermilk using 1 cup of milk and 1 tbs of white vinegar. I’ll have to use about 3/4 cups of buttermilk in order for the dough to be less wet for kneading. Maybe that’s because of the flour I used. Either way, I like this recipe, hope this helped. Thanks Sandy for sharing!

      Whole wheat flour is heavier than regular flour. I’d suggest putting two generous TBSP of cornstarch in the bottom of each cup when you measure your flour to compensate.

        Think if you use coconut oil that you would refrigerate it first, then add as you would butter or shortening. Haven’t tried it yet, but is a good idea too. Will change the taste a bit.

    I tried them with almond milk siance my lil guy can’t have regular milk & mixed them in my mixer cuz I have very bad arthritis in my hands. It was very easy to work with & not much rolling out which was nice! Only thing I noticed is mine didn’t get nice n brown on top like in the picture… not sure if its cuz of the milk or just the way my oven cooks 🙂
    Very tasty & big hit with a fussy 3 yr old!

        I had a friend that would make strawberry shortcakes with biscuits (I like it with angel food). Just sugar on fresh chopped strawberries stirred and let sit to make its own syrup poured over the biscuit and top with whipped cream. Yum! I’m personally a sausage, biscuits, and gravy kinda person but the chicken and biscuits are soooo good, too! ? also biscuits with honey, biscuits with butter and apricot preserves! ? biscuits pretty much go good with anything! I’m looking forward to trying this recipe, thanks for sharing! ?

    🙁 tried making these twice tonight and I did something wrong. first itme I used shortening. when that did work I tried it again with butter. they didn’t rise either time and were very dense. I used AP flour and followed the instructions. the flour was unbleached–would that have mattered. any feedback would be appreciated. thanks!

    Reply
    • scratchthiswithsandy 5 years ago

      Oh no!! I made them tonight as well! Here’s two things I’m thinking… one are you doing a full Tablespoon of baking powder not teaspoon… two if you over kneed these that’s where it can go wrong! You just need to gently kneed it 10-15 times… Sorry your having problems!

        Mine were tasty but were dense or “heavy” as my grandma would have said. Checked the recipe I followed it to a tee. Any suggestions? Can your baking powder get old or go bad, and how can you tell.

          I have found that when you cut out the biscuits with a cutter, do not twist the cutter. Just push straight down. Twisting the cutter actually seals the edges to an extent and helps to prevent them rising as high as possible and getting those lovely areas of air that makes the “layers”. I have done them both ways as a means of testing this theory. Try it out next time you make biscuits from scratch! I have tried this recipe and the biscuits are good. I used AP flour and baked them for 18 mins for that perfect brown color and omitted the butter glaze at the end. They were good.

        • Christine 3 years ago

          Yes baking powder can go bad.. to check for freshness add 1 teaspoon baking powder to 1/3 cup hot water and mix – test only works with hot water as baking powder is activated by heat – if lots of bubbles form then your powder is good, if there are no or only minimal bubbles then you need to buy new.

    Use vegetable oil. Much quicker. Use a whisk to blend it in. Only use 1/4 cup. Canola is ok as is olive oil. Not EVO since flavor is too strong. Light olive oil is better. But to be true butter gives best flavor.

      I will try a batch with oil, see how it turns out, because I am a bit low on butter & shortening right now and want to make 2 batches. I may put shredded cheddar in these ones and some seasoned herb blend, and have the other ones plain with butter.

    These are amazing! I didn’t realize that you could use the same amount of butter as shortening so I experimented based on research I did on other biscuit recipes. I used a half cup of butter cut into cubes. The results were amazing! These are bookmarked and I may never buy biscuits again.

    Tried these tonight!! My first time ever making biscuits 100% from scratch! I’ve done the frozen biscuits in a bag (Mary B’s are really good, but occasionally don’t rise like they should) & of course the mix in a bag types where you just add the wet ingredients. I actually doubled the recipe & simply placed globs of the dough on a cookie sheet by hand & they were delicious! !! I got 12 big biscuits out of it & cooked them a few minutes longer than the 15 called for to get the tops golden brown. We had family over for dinner & everyone LOVED them…..I even got several great compliments including “these are the best biscuits I’ve ever had!” So glad I found this the other day…will be doing these a lot!!! Every biscuit was devoured tonight & my son wants them for breakfast!!!! THANK YOU!!! 🙂 🙂

    I am trying these at high altitude. I didn’t really make much adjustment of anything. It’s my first time baking at higher altitude as I’m from the Midwest, but now in the Rockies. I had the flour in the freezer to have it cold, cut in cold butter (which I could have made the crumb texture a bit more fine), and I used buttermilk as I have a southern-born husband raised on buttermilk biscuits. Husband says they are great, so we will be having these again!!

      You could try putting it in the mixer and use a whisk… Or try with softened butter… I use my fork and cut it in!

      I make biscuits like these all the time. The easiest way to incorporate the butter is to freeze it first and then use a box (or other type) grater to grate it directly into the flour mixture and then just give it a quick stir. . Easier and more efficient than cutting in, and frozen butter works best in recipes like this. Makes the finished product very fluffy.

    I used the same recipe for years and then due to health, didn’t bake. Imagine my dismay, when I started baking again that my biscuits wouldn’t turn out and were too dry. I had purchased a new colorful set of measuring cups to match my kitchen. After the fifth failed attempt, I found the one cup measure actually held almost 1 1/4 cups of flour! If your biscuits fail…check your measuring cups.

        That could of changed it. Just toss a little extra flour in… It should be a little sticky when you move it to the counter… and kneed it into that flour as well.

        Linsay, I always use real butter, never shortening. I always use whole milk or buttermilk. The dough is supposed to be kind of wet, then dumped onto a floured board and add flour as you knead/fold it. Mine always turn out perfect that way. I gently shape the dough into a somewhat small rectangle/square, and cut them with a cutter, never twisting the cutter, push it straight down. Perfect beautiful round flaky biscuits every time. The final scraps molded into the last biscuit are funky looking, though.

    My Grandmother was known for her biscuits that she made every morning. They had a farm so seems like there was a jar of “clabbered” milk on the counter over night. She also had a square 8×8 black metal pan that she put grease in to melt in the oven. When she placed the biscuits in the pan she ran them thru the hot grease and then turned them over. No one has this recipe of course!

    I lost my old homemade biscuit recipe and came upon this one. I just pulled them out the oven and they taste AMAZING! I used coconut oil instead of butter or shortening, and ran out of my 2% milk half way through, so I used half 2% and half unsweetened vanilla almond milk. They taste so good, better than my old recipe. This one is for the books. Also, my dough was really wet so I made sure the surface, hands, and dough were well floured. That got it to a soft dough.

    These biscuits have turned out great every time I make them with buttermilk and real butter – never shortening. I also put my flour in the freezer to keep it cold so the butter also stays cold and I get wonderful flaky layers that my Southern-born husband absolutely loves. I’m wondering today, if I could substitute some or all of the cold butter with cold bacon grease to give it a nice bacony flavor? Opinions?

    Thank You!!!!! I reluctantly made these bisquits this morning. Was I ever very pleasantly surprised. I grew up eating my momma’s homemade southern bisquits. She never measured the ingredients. Even when she stood next to me to say “okay, that’s enough….no…that’s too much, I have never been able to come close. I think she set me up…lol. Well, these bisquits came out really tastey…not quite like momma’s, but pretty darn close. My Arkansas guy said he would not change anything. Oh, and he thinks he is a better cook than me….shhhh…he is, let’s just keep it a secret for now. 😉 P.S. I baked at 435 temp and added about 1/4 Cup extra half and half and cooked for approximately 25-26 minutes. I do not use shortening,so used all butter (the good stuff) and half and half because I had no milk on hand. I also used a cast iron skillet (just like momma). Next time I will try the buttermilk.

    • Sandy Meyer 3 years ago

      It very well could be your baking powder! If its old baking powder it could prevent it from rising! Or too much kneading can prevent them from rising! Try again… It took me about 3 times before I got it right… now I make them about twice a week!

      I know this is going to sound CRAZY but if you could possibly help me with converting the ingredients for this recipe for 3000 biscuits, PRETTY PLEASE.. I used one of the recipe ingredient converters online but it gave me everything in cup, I am thinking that it would be easier if I could get it in pounds… lol or if you could point me in the right direction possibly a website that will do that for me…

No more can biscuits for the Lorenzo family. Thank you so much for your recipe. I made these as a side to go with my pot roast. The girls couldnt wait till the pot roast got finished. They just had to have them right then. All I hear is…..ummmmm….. Lol. So glad I tried these and the few items needed to make them I already had in my kitchen.

    Just made these, and loved them! I do have a question though. My biscuits were not very thick. Will they rise better if they are touching on the pan? I know some frozen or refrigerated biscuits say that. Just curious!

    (I honestly think it was my error though – I made 14 biscuits. Your pictures show 8!)

    Reply
    • Sandy Meyer 3 years ago

      You may have just cut them down a bit more than I do… Keep them on the thick side when you are flattening them out if you want them thicker… and set them next to each other not quite touching … they will grow into each other… that may help them rise taller as well! I love these biscuits… It took me a handful of times before I mastered them!

    Tried these yesterday morning, with lard, as shortening wasn’t available and I didn’t have enough butter… They turned out great, though lacking a bit in salt. And I put honey in and over them when they were done. Really need to put it in the mix though. This was my first time making biscuits!! I felt like “playing” in the kitchen, as my hunnie puts it lol. I put scrambled eggs with cilantro, garlic salt and homemade salsa in them, pretty good!
    I bought sausage yesterday, plan to make these biscuits with sausage and gravy!!! Mmm mmm
    Just wondering… is there a low carb option for this? I have gestational diabetes, and flour/carbs makes my sugar go up. Another type of flour? Thanks for such a great recipe, took me no more than 30min for the whole thing. Even my hunnie was like, “they’re done, that quuck??” LOL he’s so funny ?
