These Southern Buttermilk Biscuits are unbelievable right out of the oven! Fluffy, super soft, and melt-in-your-mouth bliss. Your family will adore these. Definitely eat these right away, while they’re fresh and warm.
Years ago, I discovered Hubby’s buttermilk biscuit habit. It almost always manifested itself when we went out for fried chicken. He’d regularly order extra biscuits. Sharing wasn’t high on his priority list so I had to fend for myself when hot biscuits were happening.
The Littles have one by one shown their own allegiance to buttermilk biscuits. These days, we have to order an armload of freshly baked biscuits to go with a basket of fried chicken so nobody gets left out of the biscuit party.
