“I got this recipe from a friend. These are quick and easy to make. Please do not substitute sweet milk for the buttermilk. (It is okay to make your own by adding a Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to milk and let it sit 5 minutes.) Please note that the amount of flour is approximate. If your dough is too sticky you can add more by sprinkling it on top while kneading.”
8-12 biscuits
