Video: How To Make Southern-Style Biscuits

Perfect, flaky buttermilk biscuits

Perfect fluffy biscuits sometimes have a reputation for being tricky, despite having simple ingredients and preparation. But, really, to pull them off, all you need to know are a few key tricks. Luckily, our Southern-style biscuit recipe rounds these pointers up for you.

The grated frozen butter, the super-chilled wet ingredients and the fridge time before baking result in the ultimate flaky buttermilk biscuit. Out of the oven, the biscuit layers give way at the slightest pull, and the pockets of air that helped the biscuits rise so golden and tall release in a steamy puff.

Now is the time to add more butter (yes, more butter). Or maybe some homemade jam. Or maybe sausage gravy. There's really no wrong move here, because you have hot-from-the-oven biscuits.
