Did you know today is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day? There are many ways to make biscuits in this world. Which fat to use, lard, butter, shortening? Buttermilk or cream?
I am a fan of buttermilk and using frozen butter, but have used lard when testing recipes for work. Those were great biscuits, but it’s unlikely I will have any lard on hand to make them again. I did, however, learn to add just a pinch of sugar to the dough.
Here is a great recipe for Skillet Buttermilk Biscuits. The cast iron skillet makes for a wonderful golden biscuit bottom. Try adding a pinch of sugar for slightly sweet edges. Link to recipe here
What’s that you say? National Buttermilk Biscuit day was yesterday? How ’bout you mind your own biscuits.
