Copy Cat Cracker Barrel Biscuits

Hello, Dear Ones!
Do you love Cracker Barrel Restaurant like I do?
Yummy home cooked food.
Well, I have found a wonderful copy cat recipe like the CB biscuits!!
 Just gaze your most gorgeous peepers on these puppies!
They taste as good as they look too. Actually I think they taste a little better than the biscuits at CB because we eat them right out of the oven while they're piping hot and sliced with pats of butter just melting on the insides!

 Look at how high they puff up! 
Just a little tip: if you want your biscuits to rise high when rolling out your dough, leave the dough about a half inch or more high, then cut.
 For years I used a glass to cut my biscuits, made since to me, but later found out that hinders the rise. The glass seals the edges and prevents them from rising well. 
So I use a sharp biscuit cutter dipped in flour and voila! Puffed up high biscuits.

I always take a little of the left over dough and roll it up by hand to make a little biscuit for my little Chloe Dawn, my mini Schnauzer. She gets hers without butter though.

I hope you'll try these biscuits as they are so delicious and so easy! 
Let me know if you like them.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Biscuits 

2 1/4 C. Bisquick Mix
2/3 C. Buttermilk
1 tsp. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Butter, melted

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix first three ingredients together, add 1 Tbsp. of the melted butter into batter. Stir ingredients until soft dough forms. Turn onto surface that has been dusted with flour. Knead 20 times, roll 1/2 inch thick, and place in an ungreased 8 by 8 cake pan. Place biscuits next to each other. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

  3. Good Morning, I'll be right there to share a biscuit with you!
    So sweet that Chloe Dawn gets a special biscuit.
    Thanks for the recipe and the tip about not using a glass!
    Wishing you a sweet day!

  4. I LOVE biscuits. No one in my family really cares for biscuits. I try not to eat flour. But, those biscuits are calling to me. Thanks for the recipe and the tip on not using a glass which is what I have always done.

    To get my periodic biscuit fix, I buy the frozen biscuits- I think they are Grands - and then I can heat one (okay, I admit to heating two) and they are amazingly tall and fluffy.

  9. OMG - they look so good, just like the ones they at the farm when I was growing up. My uncles would not sit down to a meal unless they had hot biscuits at EVERY meal. Yum yum yum. I am going to try them.
    Wish I had a couple right now.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. Shelia..the strangest thing happened. I have bought and used bisquick for years and years..since the olden days!! :) Well, lately there seems to be a change going on..because ..there are all sorts of different types..and poor PH picked up two different ones at the store thinking he was getting our original.
    So..he thought. Finally when he did the monthly shopping at Costco, he came home all smiles with this HUGE box of original Bisquick! So..bottom line is I can make the buscuits ..tonight!! Thank you for sharing.

  20. Wow, these look so good. Biscuits have to be made with buttermilk. We too, love CB. When traveling you always know you can get a good meal there.
    Hugs, Ginger

  21. We call these scones here but they are the same I'm sure. Yours certainly look so light and fluffy. MMMMM hot out of the oven with butter. Sounds good to me. xx

  25. Shelia,
    I use, almost, the exact recipe for our biscuits here on the Prairie, dear friend!!!
    I've found that if you crowd your biscuits together, they poof up higher. . .
    but they are also softer in texture. If you like a crusty biscuit, don't crowd them!
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!
    Great minds. . .kindred spirits? Either way, we both make a good biscuit!!!(wink)
    Fondly,
    Pat

  26. We had breakfast at CB Friday and Saturday :) I can't make biscuits. They turn out terrible. My hubby's momma made the best biscuits of anyone and I used to stand by her watching her and her trying to tell me how to do it but mine never came out like hers. So I buy those frozen bisuits. I may try this recipe.
    I found a recipe for homemade bisquick so thought about making that.
