Recipe by Demelza

This is my version of buttermilk biscuits. I had looked at lots of different recipes, took what I liked from them & came up with this. I used my food processor, but you could also cut the butter into them by hand if you wanted to. You can use either a cookie cutter or cut these into squares with a knife. Make sure you do not twist the biscuit cutter while cutting the dough. If you do you will glue the edges of the biscuits together & they will not have the flaky splits on the sides. Here is a trick if you want a really smooth top on your biscuit, turn it upside down when you put it on the cookie sheet. They go well with either sweet or savory toppings & fillings. I hope you enjoy them.
