Biscuits are often overlooked as one of the most basic bread out there, but if you can find a good homemade easy biscuit recipe, then you might never look at regular buns or bread options the same way again. They are just so incredibly easy to make, taste absolutely delicious, and come with a texture that is perfect for dipping in soups or stews. The only problem with this biscuit recipe and many others is that the sizes of the biscuits are small, so make sure to mix up a double batch if you’re serving guests, just so that there’s enough to go around for everyone.

Biscuit Recipe

These biscuits are light and fluffy and yet also heavy enough to fill you up, and their sweet and salty contrast makes them a hit at dinner parties. At first, they might not look like much, but with the assistance of a bit of potent cannabutter, and a cool head to read through all of the instructions, you can have several batches of these biscuits ready to serve in less than an hour, or make just one batch for yourself, so that you can freeze some to reheat later.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Calories: 140

Servings: 10


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons cannabutter
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Himalayan salt


  • Mixing spoon
  • Mixing bowl
  • Fork
  • Rolling pin
  • Round cookie cutter
  • Baking pan


  1. Start by preheating the oven to 425°F.

  2. Now, add the cannabutter, salt, flour, baking soda, and baking powder to a large mixing bowl and use a spoon to combine the ingredients until the dough forms small balls.

  3. Once the balls form, you want to immediately stop mixing with the spoon. Otherwise, you will lose the flaky texture. So, instead, use a fork to pull the dough towards the sides which will gently bring it all together.

  • When the dough comes together into a workable mount, use your hands to form a hole in the middle, similar to what you’d imagine a volcano might have.

  • Next up is the buttermilk, which can be dumped into the freshly made well.

  • Grab the outsides of the dough and fold it into itself anywhere between 5-9 times, or until the buttermilk is entirely absorbed.

  • It’s now time to roll out the dough so that you can use a cookie cutter to remove perfect circles from it. If you don’t have a cookie-cutter, then a dull knife or glass will work perfectly too.

  • Place the freshly made discs onto a cookie sheet and then bake them in the oven for between 10 and 13 minutes or until done.

  • How to enhance this biscuit recipe

    If you’ve already tried these heavenly biscuits a few times, then you might be trying to figure out how to take things up a notch, but that is the wonderful thing about this biscuit recipe. Though it’s a touch of sweet and salty, it’s also bland enough to add additional ingredients to really make them pop.

    This can be done by adding your favorite fruits to the dough like strawberry or blueberry, or by topping it with something amazing like cannabis-infused peanut butter or hazelnut spread. The choice is yours, and with every change, you’ll see a world of difference happening that you can taste.

    Biscuits dosage recommendations

    This easy biscuit recipe is meant to be helpful for beginners who have little to no culinary experience, but it is still packed full with enough powerful cannabinoids for the most seasoned cannabis connoisseurs so you do have to be careful about how many you eat in one sitting. Beginners are best to start at one of these biscuits per sitting, and those with a higher tolerance to THC should limit themselves to a maximum of two to start.

    Eventually, you can figure out what kind of dosing is comfortable for you, but until then, it’s always best for consumers to start low and go slow while experimenting with cannabis goods such as edibles. Reason being these incredible products provide more intense effects than those that are achieved with smoking, and those sensations can last much longer too.
