    Sue Lau's Note:

    Goes great with sausage gravy or just warm spread with marmalade or preserves. Fill some with sausage patties and freeze to have ready for a quick breakfast from the microwave!

      Had to use up some buttermilk so decided on these biscuits, soo happy I did, they were wonderful fluffy light as a feather biscuits!! Didn't have to add more flour, 1 cup buttermilk was exactly right. I only got 10 biscuits because I wanted big ones and used a very large floured glass. They were perfect under a stew and just buttered!! Thanks for sharing Sue.

      This was excellent. Easy to make and no additional flour was needed as suggested. The flavor was great and they were real light and flaky as biscuits should be. Great with biscuits and gravy.
