The BEST Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits you’ll ever try! Forget pre-packaged biscuits, this homemade version is simple to make and packed with flavor!
To me, there is nothing better than a good biscuit with honey or jam. Either as a breakfast, side item, or even a snack when the craving hits! Such comfort food, right?!
For YEARS, I bought Pilsbury Grand biscuits from the grocery store and those to me, were as good as it got! Yes, restaurants have great ones too, but Pilsbury biscuits were easy, quick, and always a winner!
This past weekend however, my opinion officially changed. My hubby decided to make some from scratch using a family recipe. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out because of how few ingredients the recipe called for.
After only about 10 minutes, he had the biscuits ready to go in our cast iron skillet. Now, if you don’t have a cast iron skillet, no worries, simply use a cookie sheet/baking tray.
The biscuits only needed about 10 minutes to cook and looked perfect!
To me, the real test is how easily you can pull them apart, aka how flaky and fluffy they are. These scored a 10/10 by each and every family member. Even my kids didn’t believe that they were homemade because they looked and tasted incredible!
I enjoyed mine with some honey (local honey for the added allergens of course), whereas my hubby enjoyed his with homemade jam!
However you choose to enjoy these (maybe even in biscuits and gravy), they’ll be thoroughly enjoyed!
Save money and makes these Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits at home! Enjoy!!
