Cooking For 2 | Snowflake Biscuits

One year I was making biscuits during the winter and thought it would be fun to use a snowflake cookie cutter. They turned out super cute and were a huge hit! I use this biscuit recipe all the time, but the only difference between these and regular biscuits is the shape.

In case you’re wondering, the photo is from another time when I made a mass amount of these biscuits, but this recipe is for 2-3 people.

This recipe makes 8-10 snowflake biscuits.

2 cups white flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk or buttermilk

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and cream of tarter.
3. Using a fork, cut in the shortening until the mixture has coarse ‘crumbs’.
4. Make a well in the center of the ingredients, stir in the milk.
5. Lightly flour a surface. Dump the dough onto it and knead the dough by folding and pressing the dough 10 or 12 times until it’s smooth.
6. Roll the dough out to ½ inch thick.
7. Dip a snowflake cookie cutter in flour and start cutting out biscuits. Place in a greased glass baking dish.
8. Bake the biscuits for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
9. Remove biscuits from pan and serve hot with butter.


  1. I can't make biscuits!!!! The last time I did it they were HORRID!!! LOL

  2. I think you should do a biscuit making 101 OR just a biscuit making for dummies post!!!!!

    1. Lol well this is about as good as it gets... Biscuits are super easy! The biggest part is making the crisco into crumbs and using cold milk. The cream of tater helps them be soft the baking soda helps them rise... That's about it.

  3. That is absolutely darling. I haven't made biscuits in ages. Pinning away. :)
