Homemade Southern Country Biscuit Recipe


2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
¾ tsp. salt
1 tbs baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
4 tbs butter
1 cup whole milk
1 lemon, juiced


1. Add the lemon juice to the milk and let it sit for 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Whisk together the first four ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Dice the butter into small cubes and freeze it for five minutes. Cut it into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender. It should resemble small gravel.
4. Pour in the milk and stir to combine. Sprinkle flour over a clean work surface.
5. Knead the dough on the work surface three to four times, and then roll it out until about 1-inch thick. Cut out 2 inch rounds and arrange these on a cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
