Homemade buttermilk biscuits are the perfect companion for many meals, including brunch, breakfast and mid afternoon snack. Everyone I know has had a biscuit at some point in their lives and I bet so have you.
Making your own biscuits at home is so much easier than you can imagine. Let me share with our (my family and my) favorite go to recipe for homemade buttermilk biscuits. This buttermilk biscuit is crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Perfection in every bite.
Soft and fluffy homemade buttermilk biscuits, perfect as a side dish or on its own. Anytime of the day! 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly golden. Tip: Don't over work the dough, you don't want the butter to melt.

2. Combine all dry ingredients together and mix until combined.
3. Break the butter into cubes and toss over dry ingredients.
4. Using a fork mix the butter into the flour mixture. It should resemble large pieces.
5. Add in the buttermilk and stir until combined.
6. Dust your board or counter, toss the dough and with your hands press the dough to about one inch.
7. Using a 2 inch round cutter cut out the biscuits.
8. Place them on a baking sheet. They can either be separated at about 1 each from each other or touching. Depending on your preference.
9. Leftover dough can be combined and cut again. It won't be as pretty, but it sure will taste good.
10. Brush each biscuit with buttermilk and sprinkle with sugar. This will add extra flavor and texture.
