My favorite biscuit recipe! My cousin recommended this Southern Buttermilk Biscuits recipe to me years back and I still come back to it, it’s just a staple recipe for me. I like making large batches for these biscuits then freezing (including scraps for this delicious biscuit casserole.) After I cut out the biscuits I place them onto a floured tray or plate and freeze them, then transfer them to zip-loc bags. This is super efficient and you’l have ready to use biscuits whenever needed.
