  • 3 1/4 cups Biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup Cold unsalted butter
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 1/2 cup Buttermilk


Preheat oven to 375°. Measure buttermilk in a liquid measuring cup; add the egg and stir briskly to blend. Combine biscuit mix and butter in a bowl. With your hands, cut in the butter until pea-sized crumbs are formed. Add milk mixture; mix with a spoon until ingredients are moistened.
Lightly dust your work surface with about ¼ cup biscuit mix. Scoop the thick dough onto the surface. Knead about 10 times to form a smooth ball. Pat the dough to an even height of 1”; cut into jumbo (3 ½” diameter) biscuits and transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot.
If desired, non-dairy milk or shortening may be used with good results.
