Classic Buttermilk Biscuits

Posted in : Baked goods, Breakfast, Extras, Uncategorized on by : Marisol Chancellor

Because 2020 is the year of comfort food…I give you my “Classic Buttermilk Biscuits” I found this recipe on the Internet many years ago, way before food bloggers where a thing. That’s why today, I have no idea where it came from. I’ve adjusted it to my taste and needs over the years but how easy these are to make, has never changed.

My husband was quite shocked when I told him my biscuits were not on my blog yet. He loves these biscuits so much! Well, now they are. I think it was just about time.

These are slightly sweet, super soft and flaky. Comfort food at its best.

I like making a smaller biscuit, no bigger than 1 1/2″ inches. They cook in less time and keep their moisture better. Plus, they are cuter. I like to serve these with breakfast right at the center of the table with strawberry jam and butter, but we also love them for weeknight dinners, meatloaf and homemade biscuits…do I need to say more?
