Fluffy Southern Biscuits

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Gods_sugarcookie

These turn nice and golden and have a slightly crisp outside with a fluffy, buttery inside. I like these because they taste so good and are healthier than the traditional version, using margarine instead of shortening, butter, or lard. Buttermilk can be subbed for milk for a tangier flavor. Feel free to post pictures, and thanks!!

I made these biscuits for breakfast this morning and all I have to say is WOW!!!!!!. I have been looking for a GOOD recipe and I have finally found it. I made the cut out biscuits and they were perfect. I only made a few teeny weenie adjustment: I beat an egg in with the milk before I added it to my flour mixture, I used a stick (8 tablespoons) of butter instead of margarine and I didn't roll my mixture. When I turned it onto my floured surface I gently kneaded it just to incorporate some of the flour because I still wanted it to be somewhat moist.After that I just patted and pressed it out to the thickness I wanted. I was able to cut a dozen med sizebiscuits. Boy did they fluff up! These are the best and the easiest biscuits I have EVER made and I have made my share. Thank you God's Sugarcookie
