I am always down for a biscuit, anytime of day or night, but especially when they are these mini biscuits! They are tiny and perfect for any occasion. Plus, when they’re small then you can eat more of them, right?
Biscuits can seriously go with any meal of the day. Breakfast biscuits and gravy, a lunch turkey bacon avocado biscuit sandwich, a dinner soup with a side of biscuits, a lemon blueberry biscuit for dessert! Those are just a few options, but the point is that biscuits are very versatile! Or, since it is fall, you could enjoy these with my whipped pumpkin honey butter (recipe coming soon!).
ingredients needed for mini biscuits
- baking powder
The great thing about these biscuits is they only use common household ingredients! So whenever you get a craving, these biscuits can quickly be on the table.
how to get the perfect biscuits
There are a few keys to getting the perfect biscuit. The first step is making sure you use COLD butter. Leave it in the fridge until you are ready to add it to the dough! You can cut the butter into small pieces or my preferred way is to use a cheese grater to grate the butter in. Then it is in small pieces that can easily be worked into the dough.
The next key is to not over-mix the dough! Once the butter is added, use your hands to mix the butter into the dry ingredients, until there are small pieces of butter left in the dough. Then, when you add the milk, mix just until the dough comes together. It will be a shaggy dough, but this is perfect!

- copycat mcdonald’s mcgriddle
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter cold
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Preheat the oven to 425. In a medium bowl add flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Mix until combined.
- Using a cheese grater, grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients. If you don't have a cheese grater, just cut the butter into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients.
- Use your hands to mix the butter into the dry ingredients. Mix until small chunks of butter remain. Add the milk and stir just until combined. Do not over-mix!
- Dump the dough onto a lightly floured surface. The dough will be very shaggy. Roll the dough into a 1/2" thick large rectangle. Using a small cookie cutter or cup that is about 1 1/2" in diameter, cut out the dough.
- Transfer the cut out dough to a lined or greased baking sheet. Bake for 11-15 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown. Brush with melted butter and enjoy!
