"It don't get no easier than this".... after frying ham and potatoes,I HAD to have biscuits. I made these in a "spur of the moment" and they were wonderful and super easy. However, I got six biscuits out of it...Yes, I made them large...though I'm in West Virginia, we Texans like big food..gotta have biscuits and ham... making them again this morning with BUTTER and GRAVY.

Made these for d

Made these for dinner last night. Please keep in mind it was also my first time ever making biscuits from scratch. They turned out perfect!!! I used my 2 inch round biscuit cutter and was able to get 18 biscuits. They raised perfectly! Kids even said they tasted 100 times better than their mamaws!!! SCORE for me!!! This will be my forever go to recipe.

I LOVE buttermil

I LOVE buttermilk biscuits. Something about that smell of the buttermilk. I like to give them that little extra love by adding just a little bacon grease to it. Oh my goodness, talk about addicting. I just wanted to roll around in them they were so good. :)

After trying sev

After trying several recipes, and none of them being great I came across this one. Now my family won't let me make anything else on Saturday mornings! And anybody who has ever had them will even eat them cold because they're so delicious!

Here are a few tips I've figured out along the way...
- I always use unbleached flour
- I don't measure my milk anymore. I think it really needs more than 3/4 cup. I just try to make sure it forms into a sticky ball.
- I never use a rolling pin, and I don't really knead the dough. A lay the dough out on flour and flatten then fold about 6 times with my hands before flattening again to cut.
- I always make sure my biscuits are touching so they rise better.

I hope this helps somebody who attempts this recipe!
