Seriously Good Buttermilk Biscuits

And the picture doesn't lie...these were delicious!
I have been searching, and searching, and searching for a great recipe and most followed the same basic ideas: flour, butter, buttermilk, salt, baking powder, etc. Yet, every time I made them, they were flat, hard and "hockey puck-ish"...sigh...

Until I found this website called Pinch My Salt.

It explained the different amounts of protein in different kinds of flour and it all finally made sense. I broke out my cake flour, followed her exact recipe, and was so surprised that they turned out this good! I almost ate them all right out of the oven. (Be sure to use her recipe listed below the White Lily Recipe, titled My Recipe).
I did not use a rolling pin and I followed her direction to not twist the biscuit cutter.
When I make these again tomorrow morning, I will add a splash more buttermilk.
If you, or your loved ones, love buttermilk biscuits, then you should surely try these! My biscuits will be homemade from now on, thanks to Pinch My Salt!

  3. Sometimes you just need to understand the reasons behind cooking/baking:) These look delish. I may need to try them after the baby is born:)
