  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • ½ t onion powder
  • ½ t garlic powder
  • 1 T sugar
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • 1 ½ sticks butter frozen or very cold
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup cold buttermilk
  • ¼ cup fresh dill chopped (about 1 0.5 oz package)


  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar, and parmesan.
  • Grate 1 ½ sticks of butter into the flour mixture. Your butter should be very cold. If I don’t already have some in the freezer I will put it in the freezer for 30-60 minutes before I make biscuits.
  • Using a pastry blender cut the butter into the dry ingredients. When you are done the butter pieces should be no larger than a pea.
  • Add the egg and stir. Then add the buttermilk. If the dough seems dry you can add a little more buttermilk, a tablespoon at a time. Stir after each addition. I usually end up adding 1 more tablespoon.
  • Stir in the dill. When the dough has come together cover it with a towel and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place your dough on a floured surface. If the dough is still sticky, sprinkle some flour over the top and work in to the dough. Continue to add flour as needed.
  • Using your hands, press the dough into a rectangle that is about ½ inch thick. Fold the dough into thirds, similar to the way you would fold a piece of paper to fit in a envelope. Bring the bottom of the dough up to about the halfway point and then fold the top down over it. Press back in to ½ inch thick rectangle.
  • Repeat at least once. The more times you do this step, the more layers you will have in your biscuits.
  • Flour a 2” biscuit cutter. Cut out biscuits being careful not to twist the cutter back and forth. Just go straight down and straight back up. Repeat steps 9 and 10 with remaining scraps.
  • Place biscuits on parchment lined baking sheet. Place the biscuits close together so the sides touch.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden. Serve warm and enjoy!
