buttermilk, for brushing
Great biscuits - very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and used butter-flavored shortening and upped the sugar to a Tbsp. After mixing the dough together I let it set in the fridge for a few hours before rolling it out and cuttting it. I didn't brush the biscuits with buttermilk, but with melted butter during the last five minutes of baking. They come out light, moist, and fluffy. Plus they rise nice and high. Overall, very good especially the next day with butter and jelly.
My husband's great grandmother made the best (so I've heard) buttermilk biscuits on Earth. She passed it down to his grandmother, she passed it down to his mother, and she passed it down to me.
I decided to be prissy and find another recipe for buttermilk biscuits. These aren't as good as Mawmaw's.
My husband says they taste like the biscuits he loves at a small country resturaunt, but I think there's something missing. Strange because Mawmaw's recipe only calls for 3 ingredients: self-rising flour, shortening, and buttermilk.
These biscuits had a very good flavor. I didn't have self-rising flour so added 1 1/4 tsp baking powder and pinch of salt for each cup flour.
They didn't darken but were a light golden brown.
Delicious biscuits!! These biscuits taste like the ones my southern grandmother made when I was a child. My daughter loved these and I will definitely be using this recipe again and again.
oh what can i say, yummy homemade taste. thank you so much for sharing your recipe cher.
Very good with great flavor. A little more crispy on the bottom than I like but next time i will try 350 instead of 400. This is the first time i have found a recipe that worked for me. I usually use a mix. Thanks very much
there were light and fluffy and really yummy. i used plain yoghurt as i didnt have any buttermilk, worked fine, i thought next time i would try flavoured yoghurt for a sweet one. =D
These biscuits were a nice texture, but I'd recommend to add a little salt because they were kinda tasteless.
