Our Best Bisquick Biscuit Recipe
When Using our Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe
Only 2 Ingredients are needed!

First, preheat the oven to 450°F.

Smaller Batch - about 8 Biscuits:

  • 2 ½ cups Cold Bisquick Mix (See 'Small Batch' of the Homemade Bisquick Mix recipe)
  • ¾ cup Cold *Buttermilk, Milk, or Milk Substitute

Double Batch - about 16-18 Biscuits:

  • 5 cups Cold Bisquick Mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Cold *Buttermilk, Milk, or Milk Substitute

*Cultured buttermilk is best. If you'd like to use buttermilk but don't have any on hand, you can use a couple of tablespoons of plain yogurt and mix it in with your milk to equal the needed amount. Or you can add 1 teaspoon or 2 of vinegar to milk if you don't have any plain yogurt.


  1. Instead of scooping the Bisquick Mix into your measuring cup, gently spoon it in. Then scrape excess mixture from the top. if the baking mix is packed into the cup, it results in heavier, tougher biscuits. 

  2. Very gently mix the buttermilk and Bisquick Mix together until it forms a dough. 

  3. Pat and press the dough out flat onto a lightly flour-dusted surface. * Gently fold the dough in half, over itself, and press some more, repeating this several times. It's important not to overwork your biscuit dough. (* See Pro Tip below.)

  4. Press or roll out the dough evenly to about ½ inch thick. Using a floured biscuit cutter or knife, cut your biscuits. It's important not to twist your biscuit cutter when cutting the biscuits. 

  5. Smear a thin layer of butter, fat, or oil evenly around the inside bottom of your baking pan or sheet. 

  6. Put the biscuits in your pan or on your baking sheet Place them close together, almost touching each other, as this helps them to rise higher. We like to use an oven-proof or a cast iron frying pan to bake them in. 

  7. If you'd like to, at this point you can brush with melted butter, but it's not necessary. 

  8.  Bake for 10-13 minutes, until golden on top. 

* Pro Tip: When folding and pressing your dough, rub a light layer of butter on the dough before some of the folds for extra flakiness. 

The yummy results are pictured above!  And this, friends, is how to make perfect biscuits.

Be Creative With Your Biscuits!

Don't be afraid to be adventuresome and creative! When you make this Bisquick Biscuit Recipe, you might like to add a savory touch to your biscuits, perhaps to accompany a hardy bowl of soup for supper? 

Add a cup of grated cheddar cheese, a small sprinkle of garlic or onion powder, and/or a couple dashes of your favorite herbs to the Homemade Bisquick Mix before adding in the milk. Explore your own taste preferences!

Or perhaps you've got a sweet tooth. Add a generous handful of chocolate chips, or some cut, dried fruit and walnuts with a dash of cinnamon, to the Bisquick mixture just before adding the milk. Before serving them, you can top them off with a thin drizzle of icing for a simple dessert. 

After pursuing your creative hankerings, simply proceed with adding the milk, folding and patting, cutting, and baking your biscuits as you would if they were plain old fashioned homemade biscuits. Enjoy! 

Now, For How to Store Homemade Biscuits

Why bake twice when you can bake once? Besides, in many cases, leftovers are often even better! Cooking or baking double batches saves time and energy, and enables you to enjoy the leftovers later. But is this true of biscuits as well?

Two questions often asked are: How long do biscuits last? And, what is the best way to store biscuits?

The shelf life of biscuits depends on how and where you store them. There are 3 different ways to store your yummy leftover homemade biscuits. Depending on when you're planning on enjoying them again, you can store them at room temperature or in the refrigerator, and you can also freeze them. 

If you plan on eating them soon, the best way to store biscuits is either on a plate covered with cling wrap, in a closed plastic bag, or in another type of airtight container. This is to prevent them from drying out and getting stale. Just make sure that the biscuits are fully cooled before covering them in an airtight container. Unless it very hot and humid where you are, you can keep your freshly baked biscuits as described, at room temperature, for up to 3 days or so.

You can also keep them in a covered container in the fridge where your biscuits should be good for up to a week.

And if you're wondering how to reheat biscuits, simply pop them into a toaster oven for a few minutes! We'll often cut them in half and warm then in our regular toaster for a bit. Then comes the butter and whatever else is your favorite thing to slather on them. 

And can you freeze homemade biscuits as well? Yes! Here's how to freeze homemade biscuits to save them for up to 3 months: Make sure your biscuits are fully cooled. Pack them carefully into a freezer bag, removing as much air as possible, or into another air-tighter container. 

Can You Freeze Homemade Biscuits Before Baking Them?

Some have asked, can you freeze biscuit dough before baking them? Yes! You can freeze biscuits either before or after you've baked them! Here's how to freeze homemade biscuits so that they can go straight from the freezer into to your oven for baking: After rolling or patting out your biscuit dough, cut your biscuits in rounds, squares, or triangles, however you prefer.

Arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and place it into your freezer. Once the biscuits are completely frozen, you can transfer them to a large freezer bag or other type of airtight container and don't forget to label and date it. It's as easy as that!

This will work great with Our Best Bisquick Biscuit Recipe above. So, make a double or triple batch while you're at it so that your next batch of homemade biscuits can simply be popped straight from the freezer to the oven! 

Another great thing about freezing biscuits before baking them is that you can bake only as many as you need. Looking for quick, toasty snack? Or, do you need just 3 or 4 biscuits for just yourself or you and your significant other? You've got them at your fingertips, ready to pop into the oven.

After your oven has been preheated to 450°F, arrange them so that they're very close to each other. Bake them for 10 - 13 min. Enjoy your freshly-baked, homemade biscuits!

Is There a Difference Between Biscuits and Scones?

And while we're on the subject of biscuits, do you know difference between biscuits and scones?

Scones go way back in British culture and are as common in the UK as flaky, buttery, homemade buttermilk biscuits are to the United States.

And, while there are many similarities, there is actually a difference between scones and biscuits.

The main differences between biscuits and scones are in their textures and flavors: biscuits tend to be more buttery, light and flaky, whereas scones are more dense, crumbly, often more sweet and chock full with various fruits, nuts or other good things.

Also, biscuit recipes don't typically call for an egg, while scones do. This contributes to a texture that is a bit heavier, but not too dry. 

Scones Using Our Homemade Bisquick Mix

Can you make scones using our Homemade Bisquick Mix? Yes, you can! Here are some recipes for scones, several of which call for Bisquick baking mix. 

Here are examples of sweet, goodie-filled scones: Cranberry-Walnut SconesApricot SconesBisquick Blueberry Lemon Scones, or Chocolate Chip Scones.

And scones may have savory accents as well. Perhaps you'd like to try some of these for a brunch or snack?  Parmesan-Chive SconesHam, Cheese and Chive SconesCheese & Herbs Scones.
