15-Minute Homemade Biscuits

I love convenience as much as any mom, but at the same time I’m not willing to compromise my desire to feed my children wholesome meals in order to save a few minutes here and there.

This is why I’m always looking for easy alternatives to convenience foods, such as my homemade microwave popcorn and the homemade Bisquick substitute I shared yesterday. It puts me in control of exactly what ingredients go into a recipe, as well as the quality of those ingredients, all while putting more money in my pocket. You definitely pay a premium for convenience foods in most cases!

These homemade biscuits are the perfect side for any meal. You can have them on the table in just 15 minutes start to finish if you already have your mix on hand!

15-Minute Homemade Biscuits

Yield: 15 biscuits
Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes



  1. Mix together homemade Bisquick mix and milk to form a soft dough.
  2. Roll the dough out to about 1/2" thickness on a flour-dusted surface. Cut out biscuits with a 2.5" cutter. We repurpose an empty Campbell's soup can with both ends cut out for this.
  3. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

If you have a few extra minutes to spare, you might also try your hand at making some homemade butter as a special treat.

Do you grease the baking pan first? Spray oil, like, Pam spray, or butter? Thanks.

Ok I am giving up the making biscuits thing! Seriously not sure what I did wrong but I have never been able to make biscuits an this was no exception :-(

What did you have trouble with, Tiffany? I think one of the most common mistakes is over mixing -- you just want to stir the milk and mix enough to be able to roll the dough out.

I used 1-1/2 cups of smoked Tillamook Cheddar cheese and after baking 10 minates basted with a melted herb butter then baked 5 more minutes at 400 degrees. Mmmm
