Better Biscuits
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
6 ingredients
8 servings
Better than what? Well, better than my old recipe! Make sure that you handle the dough as little as possible once the liquid is added. Add 1/2 cup of shredded cheese before the buttermilk for a doubly good mix. *Later edit* I noticed that folks have different expectations of biscuits so I want to clarify. These are not meant to be crumbly. I do like those kind, but this recipe is more flaky. I am adjusting a few things on here to accommodate things I have learned in the 12 years since I posted this.
