Golden, butter, and soft, these biscuits are everything they should be but without the usual time or effort. The dough comes together in under ten minutes, and the process of forming the biscuits is simplified by using a basic scoop and dump method. Perfect for beginners, non-perfectionists, or anyone who is in a hurry, these biscuits are guaranteed to please all bakers- and everyone who eats them.

Perfect for an impulse bake, all of the ingredients used in this recipe should be found in the average well-stocked kitchen. See the “Improve Your Skills” section of this post for information on how to make homemade buttermilk.

Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that it can be easily made ahead of time and simply reheated when needed. Additionally, these biscuits freeze well, so we highly recommend taking the time to make a double batch.
