Buttermilk Biscuits

I had some homemade chicken pot pie filling left over, (the recipe made 2 pies, I only had one pie crust), so I decided to serve it over these Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits. It was a family pleaser!  I had never made homemade biscuits before, but now that I  know how easy they are to make, I will not be buying them in a can or mix again!
Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter (for vegan, use Earth Balance)
3/4 cup buttermilk (for vegan, use alternative milk with 1 Tbsp vinegar)

In a bowl, stir together the dry ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add the buttermilk and mix until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Turn onto a floured board and knead 6-10 times.  Roll to 3/4 inch thickness and cut with a lightly floured biscuit cutter.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a 450 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden.  Makes 12 biscuits.

    Delicious — and easy! I made a double batch so we could have leftovers. They are almost gone after an hour. 🙂 Thank you!

    I use homemade yogurt instead of the buttermilk sometimes and they are even better. It was the first time I was told my biscuits were as good or better than my Southern mother-in-law LOL Chris
