Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Biscuits


Cracker Barrel Biscuits are freshly baked biscuits right out of the oven and they are hard to beat. Cracker Barrel makes some of the most delicious biscuits around. I love these biscuits because they’re delicious, quick and easy. You might consider doubling the recipe because they never last long. Enjoy!

My recipe starts with Bisquick, the familiar baking mix in the bright, yellow box. It was invented in 1931 and has been a staple in American kitchens ever since. If you don’t have Bisquick on hand, don’t worry. One cup of Bisquick can be substituted by a mixture of one cup of flour, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt, and 2 1⁄2 tablespoons of oil or melted butter (or by cutting in 2 1⁄2 tbsp of Crisco or lard).


2 1/4 cups Bisquick

2/3 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon butter, melted

melted butter, for brushing


Preheat oven to 450°F.

Mix the Bisquick, buttermilk and sugar together in a bowl.

Add the melted butter into the batter.

Stir until a soft dough forms.

Turn out onto a well floured work surface.

Knead 20 times (this is a very forgiving dough), and don’t be afraid to get additional flour into the dough.

Roll 1/2 thick, or thicker if you prefer towering biscuits.

Cut out into 2″ rounds (or your preferred size).

Place close together on an ungreased baking sheet.

Brush tops with melted butter.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes; I usually find 8 minutes is enough.

When you remove the biscuits from the oven, brush the tops with melted butter again.
