Buttermilk Biscuits

I like to use buttermilk for many things. It makes a great pie and it also makes wonderful , tall, fluffy, biscuits. Following the recipe below, place your biscuit dough on a floured surface and pat into a square that is about 2 inches high. Cut with a knife into 9 sections. Dip the biscuits into butter before placing them onto the baking sheet............

and you will have a plate of tall, fluffy, biscuits

perfect for morning breakfast, brunch, or dinner!
Also, in baking, I always use a lot of eggs and rely on my chickens to produce them for me. Sometimes, my chickens hide the eggs and I don't discover a nest for a week or two. I don't want to throw all of those eggs away.........yet I don't want bad eggs.
If you visit my country blog, you can find out how to tell a good egg.........from a bad one.

This sounds so yummy! And I'd really like to make the butter with whipping cream and then use the buttermilk for the recipe, too. When I make butter (rarely, but on occasion), I love to drink the buttermilk - it's so delicious.

Thank you for the recipe, Kathleen. Hope you are well..sending hugs and love,

I love cutting out biscuits with a pizza cutter too. No waste
