Greek Yogurt Biscuits Recipe on Fluffy and tender biscuits made with Greek Yogurt!

Do you want to know what I loving right now? Biscuits. That’s right, biscuits. Josh made homemade Greek Yogurt Biscuits the other day and I am in love. I can’t stop thinking about them. We’ve made a lot of biscuits in our lifetime and they are all winners, but these Greek Yogurt Biscuits are perfection. Trust me, I know, I ate two of them. I had to make sure they were perfect.

You need to make these biscuits…like right now.


Josh told me he wanted to make biscuits and he looked like he knew what he was doing so I got out of the way. I didn’t go too far though because I wanted to be around when he pulled them out of the oven:)


Josh used Gold Medal All-Purpose Organic Flour. The flour is certified organic, unbleached, enriched and pre-sifted. It is the perfect flour for the perfect biscuit recipe! We love this flour!


Josh used plain Greek yogurt instead of the traditional buttermilk to make the biscuits. We didn’t have any buttermilk, but our fridge was stocked with Greek yogurt, so Josh gave it a try! Best decision ever! The Greek yogurt created a tender and flaky biscuit!


The biscuits puffed up nicely in the oven! Look at that height! I couldn’t wait to tear into a biscuit!


Josh got out the butter and honey and we went to biscuit town!


A hot flaky biscuit, right out of the oven, slathered with butter and drizzled with honey…is there anything better in life? I don’t think so!

Josh and Caleb enjoyed their biscuits with Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, but I just ate biscuits for dinner. I didn’t need anything else. I was in biscuit heaven!

Greek Yogurt Biscuits-make them happen and make them happen soon! I am requesting them for dinner this week! They go great with any meal…or if you want them to be your meal, I’m ok with that!

And if you are looking for another side dish for your Thanksgiving feast, invite Greek Yogurt Biscuits to your table. You won’t be disappointed!

Total Time
25 minutes
8 large biscuits


  • 3 cups  all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup cold plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 large egg beaten, for brushing on biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter, using your fingers or a pastry cutter. Work the dough until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, egg, and water. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture, stirring until dough barely comes together. Dump the mixture on lightly floured counter and knead until the dough comes together. Don't overwork the dough.
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter or cut into 2×2-inch squares. Combine dough scraps and roll out again to make remaining biscuits.
  5. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets and brush with the egg wash. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve warm with butter, honey, or jam!

  1. I made these biscuits last Sunday and they were delicious!!!!! I made 24 (two sheet pans) and my family couldn’t stop eating. I plan on making them at twice a month now. Thanks for the terrific recipe! I’ll be sure to pass it along to my extended family and friends.

  2. I just made these biscuits and the came out beautifully!  Slightly bland in taste, but good once you add a little jam.

  3. These were possibly the best biscuits I’ve ever made and I’ve made plenty. Granddaughters wanted biscuits and I didn’t have buttermilk, so we tried these. I will be making these from now on. Thanks for sharing. 

  4. Made these this morning and was delighted to enjoy the tasty results.  I only made one minor change (because I always modify something in most recipes I try).  I used 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup almond flour.  The results were super delicious and the flaky layers and texture were excellent.  I will make again SOON.

    As a fun note – my family has named these “Dog Gone Good Biscuits” since I was making them while my girls were walking the neighbor’s dogs bright and early this morning.  I wanted them to have a special treat when they returned home from their early morning chore.  It was worth getting up early to make these scrumptious biscuits.

    Seriously the best homemade biscuits I’ve ever made. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I used Vanilla Greek yogurt and it gave them a slight sweet flavor. This will be my go to recipe from now on. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    I tried these yesterday because we were out of milk. They will replace the recipe I ordinarily use. Tender, good flaky layers, and height. Thank you

    These are amazing! My husband always says my biscuits are too dry or not fluffy enough, so I’ve been searching for a good biscuit recipe because biscuits and gravy is his favorite meal. These turned out perfectly and were so flavorful! I actually ate a couple totally plain because they were so good. I’m definitely making these again.

    The first biscuits I’ve made that weren’t a disaster. I think technically these are scones, which I do well with, so perhaps that’s the trick for me. Either way they have a lovely texture and will be versatile for sweet or savory pairings.

    We love biscuits and my husband likes to try new recipes.  These are ABSOLUTELY THE BEST.  They are everything you wished for, but never found, with other recipes.  Wonderful taste, texture, height, color.

    I don’t typically say this but these are by far the best biscuits I’ve ever made. I did have to add some milk though as my dough was too dry and would not come together but that could be because I used Icelandic stirred yogurt instead of Greek. They’re crispy on the outside, so flaky, and not dry. Soooo good!!

    These are still warm and delicious in the kitchen! I thought I had green yogurt but I guess I accidentally picked up whole milk plain yogurt at the store. Anyways, I used that and added some shredded cheddar and fresh rosemary and cooked for 15 min. Perfectly golden and fluffy! Definitely saving this recipe. Thank you!
