Country Store Biscuits

My family loves biscuits, especially the ones from Cracker Barrel because they are so light and fluffy.  Though you use Bisquick, they don't taste like it.  After searching and different trials and error with recipes, this is the closest that I've come from Recipezaar

It makes about 10 biscuits
15 minutes prep time

2 1/4 C. Bisquick - (I use Heart Smart Bisquick)
2/3 C. buttermilk
1 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp butter, melted
also, melted butter for brushing on the biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 450.

  • Mix the Bisquick, buttermilk and sugar together in a bowl.

  • Add the melted butter into the batter.

  • Stir until a soft dough forms.

  • Turn out onto a well floured work surface.

  • Knead 20 times (this is a very forgiving dough), and don't be afraid to get additional flour into the dough.

  • Roll 1/2 thick, or thicker if you prefer towering biscuits.

  • Place close together on an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Brush tops with melted butter.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes; I usually find 8 minutes is enough.

  • When you remove the biscuits from the oven, brush the tops with melted butter again.
