How To Make Bisquick Biscuits Recipe
Making drop biscuits starts with whisking together the dry ingredients and cutting in the butter. Blend in milk just until combined and drop onto ungreased baking sheet. Could it be any simpler?
Bisquick Biscuits Recipe Notes
This is so easy to make. Here’s a few easy tips to make sure they come out just like you want them to.
For tender fluffy Bisquick drop biscuits, you’ll want to combine the dry ingredients separately. This is the best way to keep them from being tough like hockey pucks because mixing develops gluten. Combining dry ingredients first ensures even dispersion which requires less mixing when wet ingredients are added so biscuits come out soft and fluffy.
It’s also important to keep your butter very cold, even though it’s cut into tiny pieces. It needs to be in a solid-state as it’s dispersed into the dough to get tender biscuits with the right texture.
Bisquick Biscuits Ingredients
- Bisquick – I just use the Original Bisquick here, that way I don’t need any flour. It just makes the best biscuits.
- Baking Powder – The little extra baking powder helps the biscuits rise nice and fluffy.
- Sugar – Add just a tad of sugar to your biscuits to help concentrate the flavor.
- Butter – I find that unsalted butter works best in this recipe.
- Milk – Milk is your wet food item to help make your Bisquick biscuits moist and hold them together. I like to use whole milk in this recipe.
Storing + Freezing + Make-Ahead
- Storing: They should cool completely first then store them in a resealable bag. It’s best if you squeeze excess air out of the bag to keep your drop biscuits from drying out. I typically put mine in the fridge.
- How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge? This only makes 6 biscuits so you’re not likely to have any leftovers once the fam tastes them. But, if you happen to make a double batch, these little gems will stay good in the fridge for up to a week. Just be sure to let them cool completely before tossing them in the fridge.
- Can You Freeze? Nothing beats a warm yummy biscuit and these little babies are perfect for make-ahead magic! You can absolutely freeze this. I like to wrap mine individually before tossing them in the freezer bag. Then I can pull them out as needed.
- Make-Ahead Tips: Sometimes I like to get the dough ready to go so that I can bake fresh drop biscuits any time I want. Just put the spooned dough on a prepared baking sheet and then toss it in the freezer instead of the oven. It’s a good idea to gently cover with plastic wrap.
- After they harden you can pull your tray out and store them in a freezer-safe bag. You’ll be able to go straight from the freezer to the oven whenever the mood strikes.

Hi Vivah. Gosh, I haven’t tried it with shortening but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work out just fine.

I’m looking for the recipe for dropped biscuits using whipping cream. Does anyone have that recipe
I usually make Bisquick Drop Biscuits when I decide to make “homemade” biscuits. 1C to 1 1/4C milk is what I use for flakey (not crumbly) biscuits. I like this fast easy biscuit recipe.
I need to try these!
I love these biscuit, but they are crumbly. What am I doing wrong?
Hi Sharon. You aren’t doing anything wrong.:) These are just delicate/crumbly. They’re so tender and delicious, I’m okay with it!
I doubled the milk, the dough was entirely too dry! So I doubled the milk & they turned out perfect!
