Reviews for Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
"This is a very good and easy recipe for biscuits. Love that it uses pantry items, especially if you make your own self rising flour."
"Loved this, one question where can I find buttermilk powder, we don't,.t drink it just used to bake with."
"really good. I ended up rolling them out and folding them over and re-rolling several times to layer the butter. The colder the ingredients when you roll it out, the more flaky it will be."
"This is a great biscuit recipe. I used the substitute for self rising flour and they turned out picture perfect. Nice and tall and a great texture. The flavor is phenomenal-nice and buttery with a slight tang from the buttermilk. Perfection!"
"This recipe only makes 6-7 biscuits, but it is really really good. I have tried so many different biscuit recipes from the internet and had yet to find one that produced light, fluffy, and tasty biscuits like this one! I didn't really change anything except I used buttermilk powder (3 TBSP) plus 3/4 cup of water in place of the actual buttermilk called for. I also did not brush the tops with butter because I was making the biscuits for breakfast gravy. Plus, the butter flavor in these is so good, I found myself wishing I had some Bob White syrup to slather on one of these babies!"
"Easy and deeeelicious! My kind of recipe! I used the substitute for self-rising flour and used unsalted butter. Turned out just right. My favorite biscuit recipe now. Thanks."
"A beautiful texture and very tasty. Definitely a recipe to make again."
"This is my new favorite recipe for biscuits. It's so easy and tasty! Although I've found that it only makes 6-7 biscuits, not 9 like the recipe says."
"This is the best biscuit recipe I have found and I have been searching for a long time..Love the butter in it..It's now at the top of my list...and really easy also."
