Buttermilk Biscuit link


I while ago Maria at Two Peas and Their Pod posted about a recipe she found on Pinch My Salt for the perfect buttermilk biscuits. A few weeks later we decided to make biscuits and gravy, my husband's very favorite. Glenn comes from the south, and so he is a bit picky when it comes to southern comfort food. He was very happy to make these biscuits though, and followed all the instructions EXCEPT for not twisting the cutter when cutting out the biscuits. He has a grandma from the south and she always taught him that "when you cut out your biscuits, you cut, and TWIST." So be it.

These were delicious. They are flaky, soft and perfect for any meal of the day. I highly recommend you check out the link for fabulous buttermilk biscuits.

We eat biscuits a lot at our house. I cheat sometimes and use baking mix but it's never quite as good as the real thing!

I'll have to try them, I am afraid of things that rise. (cuz mine never do)...like biscuits and yeast breads.
but these...look great.

Your photo convinces me to try this recipe. For all of the baking I do, a perfect biscuit recipe still evades me.

They look FAB! My grandmother was a "twister" as well. I'm biscuit challenged. I'll certainly have to give these a try.
