Is your mouth watering thinking of these delicious buttermilk biscuits just right for slathering butter, honey, jelly or even sausage gravy all over them?
If it is, you'll be glad to know these are really easy to make in just a few simple steps.
First you'll bring your ingredients together to make a soft dough. Let the butter sit out at room temperature for a while and it will be easy to blend into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender. If you don't have time to let the butter soften, simply pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.
Put the dough out on a lightly floured board and knead gently.
Then roll the dough 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. If you can't find your biscuit cutter like me since we just moved, a glass will do.
Place biscuits on a baking sheet and bake until golden about 10 to 14 minutes. Then the best part...enjoy fresh warm homemade biscuits from your own oven!

I read a lot about 'biscuits' on the American sites (in England biscuits are cookies).

In the US biscuits are common breakfast fare often served with sausage gravy, butter and honey or jelly. Here is my recipe for sausage gravy. http://www.homeecathome.com/the-home-economist/biscuits-and-sausage-gravy
