  • Food processor


  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 ½ cups self-rising flour
  • 6 tbsp butter cold


  • Place vinegar in a measuring cup. Add milk to the vinegar to the 1 cup mark. Set aside for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 450° Fahrenheit.
  • Place flour in a food processor. Cut butter into pieces and add to the flour. Pulsate until the butter is pea-sized.
  • Add milk mixture and process until the milk has been combined with the flour. The mixture will be “sticky.”
  • Pat out mixture on floured surface until about 1 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter (or drinking end of cup). Place the biscuits on a baking sheet or baking stone.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.



These biscuits are a great alternative for times that you don't have buttermilk.  If you DO have buttermilk, you can use it in place of the milk and vinegar.
