1 cup buttermilk
1 cup grated sharp cheddar

Preheat oven to 425°. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl to blend.

Hi Pam Lanz! Thanks for checking out the recipe! Low fat biscuits are challenging, as the butter and cheese add fat, but also flavor. You can however, choose to remove the sugar and not lose much in the recipe.

Hi Michael! The recipe would be the same for wheat flour, but you may need to slowly add a bit more liquid. Thanks for reading!

They sound very rich with all that butter plus cheddar cheese! I’m always looking for recipes that are lower fat. Any ideas for doing that but keeping a great tasting biscuit? I’m also wondering why there’s any sugar added in at all. I think it’s unnecessary and wouldn’t add any.

Try using White Lily all purpose or self-rising flour. It makes a wonderful soft, smooth biscuit and/or scone.

Yum. Nice presentation with the ingredients first (for reference or those who already know the process) and nice pictures of each step (for beginners.)

Jef,
Receiving your homemade biscuit recipe today, the SAME day that I placed an order with Smithfield Hams of Virginia for a Ham & Bacon Breakfast BISCUIT Kit is EERIE, to say the least. Is it possible that Pinetree has “discreetly” placed cameras and microphones in their customers’ homes??

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family

I LOVE biscuits. They satisfy my craving for crispy and salty in one package. I thought I would give a hint, for easy dispensiing of the 1/4 cup of dough. I make big gluten freeoatmeal cookies, to sell at Farmer’s Market. I have found two different ice cream scoops, which make perfect sized cookies every time. One is 3 Tablespoons and the one I use for the oatmeal cookies, is 4 Tablespoons (1/4 cup) that is a LOT easier than getting sticky dough out of a measuring cup, for each biscuit. ;D

Hi Sue! Great tip about the dried buttermilk! You can also find powdered cream to keep in the pantry. Both are great to have around when the need to bake strikes!

Hi Jimmy! Just one tablespoon sugar! It is corrected in the article now. Thanks for checking it out!

These look yummy! Just perfect for watching it snow and blow outside. If you can’t find real buttermilk at the store, there is a powdered buttermilk that works well in recipes. I think the brand is Saco? It’s in the baking aisle at most stores.

I want to try the biscuits, but need to verify that “1 tablespoons sugar” is really 1 tablespoon of sugar. Thank you
