Buttermilk Bliss: Buttermilk Biscuits

Can I just repeat myself for a second?  I LOVE buttermilk! It's super easy to make and really adds a nice dimension of flavor to everything I've been trying it in.

Buttermilk biscuits are my newest discovery.  I've never really been able to make good biscuits.  After many recipe fails, I finally stuck with cream biscuits.  Because they were easy to make.  But, they just didn't scream BISCUIT to me like I thought they should.

So I kept searching.  And I found this.  A recipe for buttermilk biscuits.   

I tweaked it a bit.  Subbed half white whole-wheat flour.  Decreased the salt to 1/4 tsp. and used salted butter.

They were delicious!  And fluffy.  I like fluffy biscuits.

To make the whole mixing butter step in easier, I grated the cold butter.  I just set the large hole grater on top of my bowl and grate away.  The little uniform chunks fall neatly into the bowl and a quick mix with the spoon keeps me from having to break out the pastry blender. I don't like that thing!

Since I'm still trying to get used to this blogging thing, I forgot to take a picture.  Silly me.  So sorry. Will fix that next time I bake them.  Until then...just imagine a beautiful fluffy biscuit with butter on top.  And raspberry jam!  Yum!
