Easy Biscuits


  • 4 cups All Purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons or 1 stick cold unsalted butter cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt placed in a liquid measuring cup, adding enough milk to bring the mixture to measure 2 cups


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Whisk the first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the butter, and using a pastry blender, cut the butter in until it resembles small peas.
  • Add the yogurt and milk mixture and using a large spoon, stir gently, just until a dough forms.
  • Pour the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and after patting it out into a rough rectangle, gently fold the dough in thirds, as if you were folding a letter. Pat into a rough rectangle and fold in thirds again.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle, about 1 inch thick.
  • Using a 3 inch diameter cookie cutter, cut out biscuits.
  • Gently gather the scraps, and re-roll to cut out additional biscuits.
  • Place the biscuits onto 2 parchment lined sheet pans.
  • Bake about 10 minutes or until the tops are nice and brown. Serve warm.
