Homemade Biscuits

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Junebug

I got this recipe from a friend. These are quick and easy to make. Please do not substitute sweet milk for the buttermilk. (It is okay to make your own by adding a Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to milk and let it sit 5 minutes.) Please note that the amount of flour is approximate. If your dough is too sticky you can add more by sprinkling it on top while kneading.

These are good and simple to make. I chose butter over shortening. There's a little too much b powder in these (but I'm very sensitive to and finicky about tasting baking powder in biscuits) but tolerable. I didn't need the full amount of milk required. I just added until the dough was very moist but not too gloppy (don't you love these technical terms?), hand shaped and placed in baking pan.
