Two years ago I shared my favorite biscuit recipe and over 100k pins later, it remains one of most  popular posts on my site.  I decided to share this small batch recipe today because sometimes 12 biscuits is just too many :)

This recipe yields six biscuits which is the perfect amount for our family.  The biscuits are light, buttery and flaky – truly perfect.

This recipe doesn’t call for buttermilk which is a good thing because I rarely have any :) If you happen to have buttermilk on hand, go ahead and substitute it for the milk if you like.

One of our favorite ways to eat biscuits is with sausage gravy. This recipe remains the single most requested recipe in my home.  #notjoking

Perfect with a little butter and some homemade jelly or pumpkin butter, this is most definitely a breakfast treat you don’t want to miss.

Small Batch Perfect Biscuits
 
Our weekends just aren't complete without biscuits. This easy Small Batch Perfect Biscuits recipe yields six perfect biscuits without the use of buttermilk. Breakfast accomplished.
Serves: 6 biscuits
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups + 3 Tbls all-purpose flour
  • 5 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 6 Tbls COLD butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter to cut the butter in. You're looking for small, pea-sized pieces of butter throughout the dough.
  3. Add in the milk and egg and mix just until the ingredients are combined. The dough will be sticky but don't keep working it.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface. Sprinkle some flour on to the top of dough so it won't stick to your fingers and knead 10-15 times. Sprinkle additional flour if necessary.
  5. Roll or pat the dough out to ¾ - 1 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter or glass.
  6. Place the biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. For extra yumminess, brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter...

  2. I love biscuits and these look yummy and so easy to make! Will try this small batch tomorrow! Pinned!

  3. 100k pins? Dang, girl! That’s pretty awesome.
    I can see why, though! Love the built-in portion control here. It would be too tempting to make a large batch!

  4. Beautiful biscuits! Wonderful done!

  5. These biscuits look gorgeous so I can definitely see they are so popular :) Love that this is for a smaller batch too since I would end up eating way too many in one sitting :) Pinned!

  6. we always end up wasting a few biscuits, so 6 would be perfect, and now I want biscuits and gravy for lunch

  7. I am in loooove with these! Such a delicious treat that is so easy to make!

  8. Thanks for sharing your biscuit recipe. You’re right sometimes a dozen is too much!

  9. Can brush with melted butter – before baking or after baking?

    OMG! and I don’t mean goodness or gosh! I saw this recipe last night and baked them this morning and they are sooooo goooood. With a bit more sugar they would \be so good as a base for srawberriy short cake!

  11. Do you have to use the cream of tartar? I’d love to try this recipe but do not have that ingredient :(

  12. Would you mind just coming to our house and whipping up a batch of anything on this page? LOL I’m going to take a stab at the biscuits this weekend.

  13. This are so delicious! Have made twice, so easy to make!

  14. Love this recipe. Made it earlier this week and decided to halve the sugar for any following batches as they were a little sweet for me. Not used to having sugar in my biscuits. Just made two batches this morning to freeze for when my son and his family come to visit in a couple weeks. These biscuits turn out beautifully even for me!

  15. I made these biscuits this morning and I think they would have been wonderful but I possibly made a mistake. Do you use salted butter or unsalted butter?

  16. Is there a substitute for cream of tartar?!!!
