Buttermilk Biscuits

The first thing that comes out of my husband’s mouth when I say I’m making soup is, “biscuits too?” “yes of course I am” I reply….but he never fails to ask. He’s right, soup can feel boring without a fluffy homemade biscuit on the side!

The biscuit problem can be very real! Some are made with Crisco, some with sour cream, milk, buttermilk. Some sweet, and some not.

The ultimate problem for me is sticky dough, oh, I just can’t stand it! Some recipes I would end up with more dough on my hands than on the cookie sheet! So I worked with different recipes to create this one, and the family loves it! See how clean my hands are? That’s success!

This recipe is quick, easy, and can be mixed up in just a few minutes, with dough free hands….. just how I like it.
