Recipe by Sue Lau
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.
