Experience the flaky, buttery perfection of hardees biscuits recipe right at home. Ideal for breakfast or as a side, these biscuits are the epitome of southern comfort food.


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk, cold


  • Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers, cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the cold buttermilk. Mix just until the dough comes together; avoid overmixing.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it 3-4 times. Fold the dough onto itself to create layers.
  • Roll out the dough to a 1-inch thickness and cut out biscuits using a round cutter.
  • Place the biscuits on a baking sheet, ensuring they touch each other (this helps them rise uniformly).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.
  • Remove from the oven and, if desired, brush the tops with melted butter.


  • The key to flaky biscuits is using cold butter and buttermilk. This ensures that the butter doesn't melt until the biscuits are baking, creating those flaky layers.
  • You can also add grated cheese or herbs to this recipe for a flavorful twist.
