After trying many, many biscuit recipes and never being happy with the results, I finally got my husband's grandmother's recipe and have never had a problem since. There is no butter to cut in, just mix all the ingredients together, pat it out flat, cut the biscuits out and bake. Wonderfully easy and amazingly light and fluffy every time. If you can't find buttermilk powder, just use 1 1/3 cups of buttermilk instead.
So good and easy to make! My siblings and I made huge batches of these cookies Sunday afternoons, and they were usually gone by Tuesday! The time for boiling the mixture is listed at 5 minutes, but if you cook it a little less, the cookies are chewier.
A little time-consuming, but mostly just in the chopping of the vegetables. This is a family favorite. I make 2 - bake and eat one for dinner and freeze the other, unbaked. Just take out of the freezer in the morning, refrigerate, and it's ready to bake for a delicious dinner.
