This is my grandmother’s recipe for buttermilk biscuits- I am sharing a secret family recipe with you. I use whole wheat flour and flax seed too- that is my variation to this great recipe!

If we are lucky enought to have leftovers, I warm the biscuits up in the morning and serve them with cheesy eggs. So good! And super fast.

Happy baking!

Buttermilk Biscuits

4 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into small cubes
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons flax seed(optional)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2-2 cups buttermilk

Using a knife or pastry cutter, cut butter into flour, salt flax seed (optional)and baking powder. When butter is pea sized, add buttermilk to 1/2 cup at a time, until biscuit dough is thick and combined well. Knead dough on a floured surface 10-15 times, shaping with your hand until 1″ thickness. Cut with desired shaped cookie cutter and place on a un-greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes until lightly golden.
