I made these per the directions, only omitting the salt because I used salted butter and they came out kind of bland and didn't brown well at all. Butter notes were well pronounced and the buttermilk gave it a nice tang, but without more salt, they'll probably end up getting pitched. Next time I'll add the salt on top of the salt already in the butter. The rise on these biscuits could also use some extra help (but they are flaky), so next time a full tablespoon of baking powder. Great tip for those who don't happen to have a food processor or shortening cutter on hand is to freeze your butter, then use a box cutter to grate the butter into the flour. I'll keep practicing until I get this right!
