Buttermilk Biscuits!

     After making Peach Cantaloupe Butter yesterday, I just had to make some biscuits to go with it!  I have tried for years to find a good biscuit recipe.  A lot that I tried just didn't quite stack up.  So after looking at many recipes, and modifying them, I created this one.  I haven't been disappointed yet!  Someone told me that these biscuits are like the ones their grandmother used to make!  Biscuits are also a great recipe to make with your kids!  Chance loves to help me mix the ingredients, and then cut them out!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2/3 cup buttermilk

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add milk all at once; stir until moistened.  Turn dough out onto a lightly flour surface.  Knead for 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth.  Pat to a 1/2 inch thickness and cut with a floured biscuit cutter.  Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.


  1. Yum again! You make food that looks really good!

  2. Thanks! I love to make good food!

  3. If you ever get tired of it, just send it over my way ;)

  4. That's the Peach Cantaloupe Butter I made from my sister in laws blog. If you go to the bottom of the 'Peaches' post, I have a link to her recipe.
