TWD: Basic Buttermilk Biscuits



This week's Tuesdays with Dorie venture was a basic biscuit. There is a choice between a sweet milk biscuit and a buttermilk biscuit. I chose the latter, since I keep buttermilk in the fridge and need to use it before it spoils.




I've been making biscuits for several decades. I rarely cut them in circles, but pat out the dough to the desired thickness, then cut it in to six or nine rectangles. These biscuits taste delicious no matter the shape.




They baked up tender and flaky with a golden brown top.





Our hostess this week is
Jennifer of Cooking for Comfort. The biscuit recipe can be found on Jennifer's blog.


Head over to the
LYL section of the TWD website to see what the other bakers thought.

These were good weren't they. Cut 6 and 'balled' last bit of dough into a bite just for me!!

I think I love the more rustic-looking biscuits the best - yours look wonderful.
