    red and white kitchen's Note:

    A moist tender bisciut inside, with a golden buttery crunch outside. After much searching for the holy grail of southern cooking, (a great buttermilk biscuit) I developed this recipe that I am very proud of. It is blending of the qualities I wanted in a bisuit. Cruchy, tender, buttermik tang, and hearty enough to stand up to breakfast gravy and moist enough to serve with chicken and dumplings. Enjoy!

      Great biscuits!. I cut the recipe to a 1 cup of flour amount and got 2 *huge* 3 1/3 inch biscuits. I could barely manage to eat one with veggie sausage gravy, lol. As good as they are I don't think I'll make them again unless it's for company because, to be honest, I'm not really sure that they are worth the extra fat content. The butter (used twice), shortening are sat fat and the cholesterol from the whole egg do add up. I mean, over 400 calories for one biscuit (a 2 inch one) is 1/3 of my allowed calorie intake per day. If you don't have food limitations then by all means enjoy these to the max but for me I've shot most of my days allotment for Sunday breakfast. My choice for today so I'm sure complaining, just something to think about. Made for PAC. Spring '10.
