Ingredients

Here’s the short, sweet list of all you’ll need to whip up a fabulous batch of biscuits!

How do I make Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits?

Preheat your oven to 425℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and rosemary. Cut the butter into small chunks and add it to the flour mixture. Incorporate the butter into the flour using a pastry blender or your hands. Continue working it in until the mixture has a crumbly consistency and the butter chunks are no larger than pea-sized.

Add the buttermilk and stir to combine. If you don’t have buttermilk, mix 1¼ cups of regular whole milk with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes before adding it to the dough.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll it out until it is about ¾ inches thick. Then fold it in quarters and repeat two to three more times. Roll the dough out again, ¾ inches thick. Use a biscuit cutter or a wide mouth glass to cut out the biscuits. Do not twist the cutter when pressing down.

Take any scraps of dough and roll them out again and cut more biscuits. Repeat until all the dough is used up. Then transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet, spacing them 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

What to serve with Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits?

If the biscuits aren’t slathered with honey and devoured as soon as they land on the cooling rack, here are some cozy soups and stews to dunk your biscuits in.
