Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
once again Chef John does it again. These turned out great. They were flaky and chewy, not tuff at all. I listened to another reviewer and used my processor for the cutting of the butter and flour mixture. They turned out great without much work. nice

German Brotchen Rolls
I changed this up a bit but these are absolutely excellent. The are hard on the outside and chewy on the inside. They are good with wet and dry fillings and last a long time. I substitute butter for the shortening and used white wheat flour. They turn out well every time make them. I did try to use coconut oil and it worked well but make sure to use the organic kind since it has very little coconut flavor.
