    I've made butter recently and I have all this lovely buttermilk left over... and since I make so much jam... I need a big pile of biscuits to enjoy it on with the family.

    I'm looking for something simple, light and fluffy! Even if I have to premake the dough I'm fine with that, I'm planning a huge breakfast for Saturday this week. [​IMG]

    Quote:I have made biscuits from scratch and they are good, but let me tell you about this awesome easy mix a came across here in NC and it uses buttermilk to make them. It is by Midstate Mills and is called Southern Biscuit it is there "Formula L Complete Biscuit Mix". Let me tell you that the first time we made them, we sat down and ate every single one! [​IMG]
    You can buy it at Walmart or pretty much any grocery store around here and it's only a couple dollars a bag. I don't think you will be disapointed. [​IMG]

    We also discovered "golden syrup", I believe it's called king syrup or something close to that, but mix it with some butter and just dip your biscuits in it, Mmmm mmmm [​IMG] We call it soppin sauce. [​IMG]

    Sorry, just my two cents, I get happy when I talk about these biscuits. [​IMG]

    I don't have a recipe..I just "eye" it,,been using it for years..self rising flour, lard/shortening (I prefer lard), few spoons sugar, buttermilk..I mix the flour and sugar, cut in the lard, add b'milk til it looks right, pinch off , roll in floured palms put in greased pan. I usually let mine sit 15-20 min. before putting in the oven...don't over work the dough. my MIL does the same but rolls them out and cuts with a round cutter.

    2 cups self rising flower, tablespoon of shortening, 3/4 cup of buttermilk. put flour in mixing bowl, cut in shortening, add buttermilk and stir until well mixed, roll out on floured cutting board and fold over and roll out again. cut with ball jar ring and put in baking pan in 450 degree oven bake about 15 minutes or until tops start turning golden brown.

    Thank you guys so much! My husband is waiting on baited breath to see what I do for Saturday and with so many choices (with good reviews!) I am dying to get me in the kitchen and do a test batch tonight!

    Just though I'd mention you can make buttermilk if you don't have any (or don't want to buy an entire carton for one recipe) by adding one T of vinegar or lemon juice to one cup of regular's saved me many trips to the store

    Cat head biscuits all the way!

    We have the cookbook listed at the top of the link, there is loads of good recipes in it. We always use lard (it slows your heart down for a little bit but they just don't taste right any other way)
