Buttermilk Ranch Biscuits

  • Author: Adapted from Carla Hall
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 13 mins
  • Total Time: 28 mins
  • Yield: 10 to 12 biscuits 1x


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting and shaping
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons ranch dressing, divided
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk and 3 tablespoons ranch dressing. Stir until just combined.
  4. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Pat dough into a 1/2-inch tall circle. Use a 3-inch biscuit or round cookie cutter to cut dough into biscuits. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Re-pat dough scraps once into a circle to cut more biscuits.
  5. Bake biscuits 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1 tablespoon ranch dressing and melted butter.
  6. Brush tops of biscuits with butter-ranch mixture. Bake another 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown.
