Awesome recipe. Every time I make these they go fast. Instead of patting the dough into one single round, I pat it into two smaller ones, cutting each round into 8 wedges and only bake them for 12 minutes. This works great because then there are more to go around. Also if you don't have buttermilk on hand or don't like using it, like me, you can use sour milk. In your measuring cup pour in about 1 1/2 to 2 tsp of white vinegar and then add the milk up to the 3/4 cup line.
