Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

There are plenty of recipes on biscuits. This is my take. The big difference for me is that I didn't want to buy unsalted butter just for making them, so I adjusted the salt added to account for the salt in the butter. This works out to be a great combination. If you use unsalted butter, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the recipe. The secret to success for biscuits is to work the dough as little as possible and keep the fats cold (10-20 minutes in the freezer). Also, make sure to use the middle to upper rack in your oven. Otherwise, the biscuits won't rise.
