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
