Ultimate Biscuit Recipes

Whole Grain Berry Biscuits
Even the most basic biscuits are a real treat when they're hot from the oven. Choose from our wide variety of biscuit recipes, including buttermilk biscuits, cheddar biscuits, biscuits and gravy, and even sweet biscuits!

Classic Buttermilk Biscuits

Everything you dream about in a biscuit is here -- flaky layers, buttermilk flavor, and buttery browned tops. We recommend serving them piping hot with honey, jam, or a light slather of butter.

Blueberry Cream Biscuits with Blueberry Sauce

Brunch won't know what hit it. Whipping cream adds incredible richness to these tender, blueberry-dotted biscuits. Serve them alongside our easy, four-ingredient blueberry spread to take these squares over the top.

Bruschetta Biscuits with Feta

Pack your favorite bruschetta toppings -- we like spinach, basil, dried tomatoes, and olives -- into savory biscuits topped with feta cheese and pine nuts.

Delicate mixing is key to these cheese biscuits by chef Scott Peacock. Watch his technique and you, too, can serve the ultimate bread basket.

Learn the tips and tricks of masterful biscuit-making from award-winning chef Scott Peacock. (Psst -- don't twist the biscuit cutter!)

Flaky Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

No biscuit collection is complete without a recipe for the Southern classic: biscuits and gravy. Grab the pork sausage and dust off your biscuit cutter; this traditional recipe is comfort food at its finest.

Icebox Biscuits

These light and airy biscuits are often called angel biscuits, because they call for yeast and have a short rise step. The icebox title comes from the fact that you can chill the dough for up to three days before baking.

Up-and-Down Biscuits

Stack cinnamon-sugar biscuit strips accordion-style, then watch them artfully puff and separate as they bake. A lacy drizzle of icing makes these biscuits irresistible.

Daddy's Biscuits by Trisha Yearwood

If Trisha Yearwood's daddy made these, you know they'll be good! Self-rising flour takes the fuss factor out of this three-ingredient recipe. Stuff 'em with whatever you like -- we're partial to pimiento cheese and tomato slices.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sweet potatoes -- fresh or canned -- color and flavor these rich, flaky rounds. Garnish each biscuit with a fresh sage leaf before baking, if you like.

Green Onion Parker House Biscuits

Shh, don't tell: These oniony biscuits started out as canned dough. But after a generous smear of garlicky Boursin cheese and a quick application of egg wash, Parmesan, and snipped green onions, we don't think anyone will be the wiser.

Bacon-Cracked Pepper Biscuits

If you love biscuits served alongside peppered bacon, prepare to have one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments. We tossed black pepper and bacon into the batter of these delish biscuits and baked 'em up golden brown and flaky. You're welcome.

Cranberry-Orange Biscuits

Add fruity biscuits to your morning lineup. These cranberry-studded quick breads use a carton of orange yogurt for flavor and richness.

Quaker Bonnet Biscuits

Smaller biscuits sit atop larger ones to create clever bonnets that shine with an egg-yolk wash. This recipe yields two dozen, making it perfect for entertaining or for squirreling away in your freezer.

Whole Grain Berry Biscuits

Combine whole wheat flour, oats, and whole bran cereal with plump, fresh blueberries for a drop biscuit that's easy and healthy.
