Today is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day and that means butter, honey or jam will adorn tables anxiously awaiting flaky treats to arrive from the oven.
There is something about using buttermilk that creates a wonderful sweet yet tangy flavor to baked goods. It is my go-to choice when making pancakes and most of all biscuits. Whether you like the rolled out, patted or drop variety, biscuits add that down-home comfort level like no other. Create your next egg sandwich on one and I guarantee your toast days are over.
Here is a very simple recipe for Buttermilk Biscuits for you to enjoy!
