Through much trial and error, I finally came up with this tried and true recipe for old fashioned buttermilk biscuits and they are truly awesome when done correctly, they are great with almost any meal and also for breakfast as in biscuits and gravy, or breakfast sandwiches, etc.. It really does make them tht much better when you lightly brush the tops with butter when they come right out of the oven.
1. Blend all dry ingredients together in large bowl by hand.
2. Cut in butter until you have small pea size. ( you should be able to make a ball of it firm in your palm and when slightly touched it falls apart ) thats how you know its just right.
3. Add in buttermilk a littkle at a time, its possible you may need tio add a tad bit more. , carefully mix this together..
REMEMBER!!! the trick to great biscuits is to play with the dough as little as possible...
4. Now turn dough out on a floured surface and carefully roll it out to a quarter to 1/2 inch thick, using biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
5. Let rest 10 minutes, place on oven and bake 15- 20 minutes at 375 degrees, or until internal temp is 195 degrees.
6. Butter tops when they come out and let cool a bit. enjoy!!
