Delicious! I used a newly learned trick and froze my sticks of butter (I used 11 Tablespoons) and they mixed up well. Also used self rising flour and omitted the salt and baking powder.

So I made this recipe and followed it to a T and way to much butter. Next time I will have to cut down the amount of butter for sure. I had so much I had to pour it off as it baked. Also to much buttermilk the dough was so runny I had to use a ton of flour and over worked the dough so my biscuits came out tough will not use this recipe again

I used light butter, and low fat buttermilk. I used less butter and a little more baking powder than the recipe stated. The biscuits were very soft & fluffy, and quite delicious.

I followed the ingredients precisely. By the time I was done blending in the butter and mixing in the milk, the batter was very runny. I tried to bake the dough, but it did not maintain its shape and the butter just melted out of it.

This was my first time making biscuits when using this recipe, they turned out great and now I make them atleast once a week, my family and friends enjoy eating them. They are delicious.

i brushed these biscuits with a little bit of maple syrup and butter before i baked them and again after they were baked. it gave them a little bit of sweetness and a nice golden color.
