    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Frozen butter is the trick to these light flakey buttery biscuits! To make cheese biscuits, add in 1-1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese to the flour mix before adding in the buttermilk. I separate into two balls, and refrigerate for 1 or more hours before cutting into biscuits, this give the gluten in the flour time to relax, and makes for a better biscuit. Although I have never tried this I'm quite sure the recipe may be cut in half, as there is quite a bit of dough to handle with the recipe, any leftover biscuits can be frozen. Don't forget frozen butter only, that's the trick to a light and airy biscuit!

      **NOTE** because of the butter content, these biscuits tend to spread out a bit while baking, not too worry though, they are still to die for LOL!

      Yes, the grating of frozen butter is a lot of work, and yes, they do spread out because of the butter (I actually put one of mine too close to the edge of the baking sheet and have a resultant mess to clean up, lol) but TRUST ME... they are SOOOO worth it. Flakey, tender, yummy! I'll gladly clean my oven for another batch of these :)

      DELICIOUS!! If I can make these biscuits successfully, anyone can! I won't lie, grating frozen butter is NOT fun, but so worth it in the end (thanks for sharing this awesome technique). I followed the clearly written instructions exactly and added the optional cheese but I used the preshredded stuff and it just dissapeared and didn't lend much of a flavor so next time I will try with a better quality cheddar. Other than that, I found it easier to distribute the buttermilk if I mixed and kneaded it all and then divided the dough before resting it. Also, I used Chipfo's advice and cut these into squares. WILL make again, THANKS KITTENCAL!!
