Cowboys (and Cowgirls) Love My Biscuits! Here’s the Recipe

At least once a week, one of the family says, “Make us some biscuits, pleeeeeeze!” I can’t resist that sweet little pleeeeeze, so I get out the buttermilk and whip these up. It’s a simple recipe and the results are mouthwatering. Give it a try!

Southern Biscuits

~~this recipe makes 10 biscuits, so double it if you have a hungry bunch~~

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, very cold
1 cup buttermilk

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (425°F if you have a convection oven.)
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor.
  3. Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles coarse meal.
  4. If using a food processor, just pulse a few times until this consistency is achieved.
  5. Add the buttermilk and mix JUST until combined.
  6. If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a floured board.
  8. Gently, gently PAT (do NOT roll with a rolling pin) the dough out until it’s about 1/2″ thick.
  9. Fold the dough 5 times.
  10. Gently press the dough down to 1 inch thick.
  11. Use a round cutter to cut into circles.
  12. Place the biscuits on a cookie sheet-if you like soft sides, put them touching each other.
  13. If you like “crusty” sides, put them about 1 inch apart.
  14. Bake for about 10-12 minutes-the biscuits will be a beautiful light golden brown on top and bottom.

So now you have my secret family recipe (which I think my sister-in-law found online somewhere) but these are great with soup, and warmed up the next morning they make great egg sandwiches. My favorite is a biscuit hot from the oven, spread with butter and dripping honey. I hope your cowboys and cowgirls enjoy these as much as mine do!

And now, I need to figure out a way to work these biscuits into a love scene in one of my books. Hmmm, honey, butter, biscuit. Any ideas for me?

    See, you say biscuits and I think of gingernuts and coconut creams. You show me the picture, and I think, oh, scones!

    • Randi Alexander says:

      I had to Google gingernuts, Clare. They’re called gingersnaps here in the US. And here, scones are more like pie dough with chocolate chips or dried fruit in them. Funny how words can mean so many things.

  2. You could have your heroine in your next book make the best biscuits around and all the men wanting to be with her because not only is she hot but can cook. For example, all the ranch hands would worship her to get to her dinner table

    • Randi Alexander says:

      I love it, Tanya! She wins the blue ribbon at the county fair for her biscuits, and the guys start showing up at her door! LOL

  3. tiss says:

    I like Tanya’s Idea. I was going to say something along those lines. Have her cooking at a ranch for the hands, or have a basket auction and her biscuits are so to die for that every man is bidding to win them and a dinner with her.

  4. Stephanie O. says:

    You could always incorporate the honey & butter in a love scene…like have the hero lick off the butter and honey off his lady, then have a bite of biscuit, and so on. Both could enjoy eating biscuits this way. 😉
