I’ve always had a thing for biscuits. Now that I live in NYC, where finding a good biscuit can be a bit challenging, I appreciate them even more.
Earlier this year, I was fortunate to be invited to spend a couple of days in Nashville with White Lily and Martha White. We cooked up a veritable biscuit storm down there! We tried several different recipes for biscuits, all of them delicious. While I love big, fluffy buttermilk biscuits, I fell in love with these Touch of Grace Biscuits.
I’ve been baking these at every opportunity since that trip. And, as September is National Biscuit Month, this is the perfect time to share these beauties with you!
So, what makes these so special? To me, it’s all about the texture. They are soft and light and just a joy to eat. Of course, all that buttermilk and cream is a pretty good thing, too. These are the biscuits I make when I want to slather biscuits with jam. Or, just eat them straight out of the pan. Believe me, that works, too.
A word of warning when making these…. Once you get the dough mixed, you may think you’ve done something terribly wrong. It looks a bit like, well, cottage cheese. But, just go with it. When they come out of the oven, you’ll have beautiful, glorious biscuits like you’ve never had before. Enjoy!

I can’t say that I bake biscuits very often but the fluffiness of these seems very appealing!
these look so buttery and melt-in-your-mouth good!!
I bet I could wipe out a whole pan of these.. you are so dangerous Jen. Nothing better in the morning (besides a warm CCCookie, warm cinnamon buns) than fresh warm butterd biscuits with some jam or honey. And if they last long enough to get hard (yea whatever) you can make some sausage & gravy and be in hog heaven. lol
They look perfect for a great breakfast.. is that a pan? or just a regular cake mold
Javi, it’s just a plain old cake pan.
You know I want that center biscuit that is calling my name!
I still have yet to get a biscuit recipe that I LOVE into my life…but this just might be it!
I’ve only tried biscuits once when I was in Arizona and have been nervous about trying ones in the UK. Now I can make these! Thanks
Hi Jennifer, I made these last night and they were a real success (your instructions about the cottage cheese were invaluable because I was originally a bit concerned looking at my lumpy mixture). They are like a cakier version of an English scone -and much fluffier. Thanks for the recipe!
Those biscuits look heeeeavenly!
What a cute giveaway! Would love to win!
Do they sell these kits also? In case I don’t win, could I purchase one of these kits?!
Hi, Lisa. I’ve asked before about the items, and they do not sell them.
My husband made these last night. Definitely the best biscuit I’ve ever had! I’m making them again tonight for dinner. Fluffy, moist and slightly crisp!
They look perfect for a great breakfast
I LOVE biscuits and gravy. I make the gravy and it awesome but my biscuits, not so much. I am going to try these the next time I make gravy.
I grew up in Washington state, but lived in the South for about 12 years. I wish I would have learned to make biscuits properly. It’s a real challenge, but I love them so much. I can’t wait to try this recipe. I’m determined to master biscuits.
I’ve been searching and searching for the perfect biscuit recipe and I think this is it. I made these a few hours ago and have already eaten five, both hot and cold, spread with butter and jam. They go very well with tea. Light, not too sweet, and a fantastic texture. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It will be my go-to biscuit recipe from now on.
Hi these biscuits looks so good…I I want to make a big batch Do you think doubling or tripling the recipe will work for them?
I have doubled them before and baked them in a 9″x13″ pan. It worked just fine!
They look very light and delicious, can I make it a little more savoury, a few herbs and maybe a little cheese added to it? Thanks.
Hi, Connie. I think mixing in some herbs would be fine. The batter for these biscuits is pretty delicate, so I don’t think I’d mix cheese into it. I think your best bet would be to sprinkle some shredded or grated cheese on top of the biscuits before you bake them.
Whoa! Those look awesome!
