Sweetie Pies' Southern biscuit recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 cup chilled buttermilk


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Use your fingertips to rub the butter and shortening into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles crumbs.
  4. Create a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together.
  5. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and dust the top with flour. Gently fold the dough over itself 5 or 6 times.
  6. Press the dough into a 1-inch thick round shape. Use a 2-inch cutter to cut out biscuits, placing them close together on a baking sheet.
  7. If there is any remaining dough, handle it minimally while reshaping and cutting additional biscuits.
  8. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they rise tall and achieve a light golden color on top.
  9. Remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
