The buttery beauty of fresh, hot, crumbly biscuits promises everyone who takes a bite a heartwarming experience that goes beyond just satisfying your cravings for something yummy. And biscuits aren’t just for breakfast anymore—they’re for lunch, dinner and late night snacks. With a crisp outer crust and a soft, fluffy middle, biscuits are the ultimate comfort food.

When you drizzle them with the love of butter and jam and pair with Sutter Home wine…well, let’s just say you’ll want to make a really big basket of your biscuits, because there’ll be a big show of hands when you ask, “Who wants some more?”

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cold

Recipe Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 475 F.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl and whisk together.
  3. Add the cold butter pieces into the dry ingredients and cut into the flour, using a pastry cutter or a fork, until it resembles coarse meal.
  4. Add the buttermilk into the bowl and stir with a spoon or a rubber spatula until combined. This should only take a few turns. The dough will be pretty wet and sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board. With floured hands gently pat out, until dough is about 1/2″ thick. Add a tiny bit of flour over top if needed and fold the dough over itself about 5 times, gently pressing down in between each fold. Gently pat the dough out to 1-inch thick.
  6. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds about 2-3 inches wide.
  7. Gently pat the scraps together to cut out the rest of your biscuits.
  8. Place the biscuits in a buttered pan close together. You can use a cast iron pan, a cake pan, a spring form pan, or a baking dish.
  9. Immediately place the biscuits in the oven and bake at 475 F for about 12-14 minutes. Do not open the oven door the first half of baking time. You want the steam to stay trapped in the oven to help with the rise. Brush biscuits with melted butter for the golden biscuit rule.
