These were very good and I was happy to find them with less fat. I will be making these again. Thank you!

Great classic buttermilk biscuits (with less fat!)! The scent, taste, and texture of these is just wonderful! I scaled the recipe down to 6 servings; and used whole wheat pastry flour, sodium-free baking powder, and doubled the salt (1/4 teaspoon instead of 1/8 teaspoon)--and all of that worked fine. Next time I may replace a couple of tablespoons of flour with toasted wheat germ, and/or add some dried herbs--to see how we like that. These (non-sweet) biscuits are ideal to serve with savory dishes, like soups and stews! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, Stinkerbell, it's definitely a keeper!!
