The other day, I saw a meme that said, “It feels like today is January 57th,” and that couldn’t be more true for me. This month has been full, in every context of the word, and I could not be more grateful that February is only a day away. If you’ve followed along with this site for any length of time, you know I LOVE February. I love all the pink and chocolates, I love the heart-shaped Valentine’s Day paraphernalia, and I even love the stay-inside weather. So naturally, I thought we’d kick off the month (a day early) with a girly gift list and some overnight buttermilk biscuits. Let’s start with the gifties.

Overnight Buttermilk Biscuits
Now, onto the cozy stuff.
You know I love biscuits. An adaptable starchy treat that serves as an option for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Sign me up. But sometimes, making fresh biscuits first thing in the morning isn’t in the cards. For those kind of days, these overnight buttermilk biscuits are the ticket. Here, a butter-packed dough comes together hours in advance so that you can bake and serve them at your leisure. It’s the morning convenience of the refrigerated can biscuits but without that greasy mouthfeel. Truly, these are awesome.
Making the Biscuits
To make these overnight buttermilk biscuits, we start with the dry ingredients. Stir together all-purpose flour, leavening and loads of salt. Next, cut ice cold butter into the dry mixture until the mixture has uniform clumps throughout. Finally, stir in the buttermilk until a shaggy dough comes together.
I pat the dough together, knead slightly, and then begin trimming out rounds of dough with a floured round cutter. Be sure not to overwork the dough- this will yield a tough, chewy biscuit. Place the dough rounds on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and cover the entire thing with plastic wrap. When you’re ready to bake them the next morning, preheat the oven and pop them in for about 12-15 minutes!
I hope you give these overnight buttermilk biscuits a try and let me know how you enjoy them. Happy (almost!) February and happy baking!

- Prep Time: 10
- Cook Time: 15
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- Yield: 18
- Category: Bread
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced
- 1 ¼ cups buttermilk, cold
- Extra butter for brushing, if desired
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking pan with a sheet of parchment. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, powder, and soda. Use a pastry cutter or the backs of two forks to cut in the butter until evenly dispersed with pea-sized clumps throughout. Gently stir in the buttermilk until a shaggy dough forms, being careful to NOT OVERWORK. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour out onto a clean work surface and dump the crumbly dough on to the flour. Gently and quickly work the dough together, kneading a few times, before patting out into a 1” rectangle. Use a 2” round biscuit cutter to trim out rounds of dough. Flour the cutter well and press down straight being careful not to twist the cutter at all. Re-flour and continue cutting out until all the dough has been used. You can gather leftover piece and gently form back together to trim out more circles. Place the biscuits about 1” apart on the baking sheet or dish. Brush with a bit of the melted butter and bake in the preheated oven for about 17 minutes or until the tops are golden and the biscuits have risen. Allow to cool slightly before enjoying and reheat in the toaster oven as needed.
