I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

Warm biscuits right from the oven makes my mouth water!


2 cups flour
2  1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsps cold butter, grated
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tbsps honey

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together, then add the butter. You can use a pastry blender or use your hands, but if you use your hands work quickly. You don't want the butter getting warm and melting. Whisk the buttermilk and honey together and add to the flour mixture. If you don't have buttermilk then milk with 1 tsp vinegar will work.

Flour your work surface and bring the mixture together. It's a little messy and crumbly at this point. Don't worry.

Gently gather up and roll out to roughly 9 X 5" and 1/2" thick.
Fold it in three and roll out again to 9 X 5 X 1/2".

Using a 2" round cutter press down and lift up each biscuit. Do not twist when cutting. Transfer to a parchment lined pan leaving 1" between each biscuit.

Bake at 400F for 11-13 minutes.

Makes 10 - 2" round flaky biscuits that go great with chili!
