Food Storage Recipes: Buttermilk Biscuits
from Food Storage Made Easy by Jodi -- Food Storage Made Easy

If you are anything like me, you probably don’t remember to get your rolls ready 4 hours in advance for proper rising. Or you may get home from work at 5 and need a quick side dish to go with your dinner. Well I have found that simple homemade biscuits are just fabulous for a quick dinner and taste better than any store-bought tubes. Here is a recipe I’ve been using that my family really loves.
Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe:


2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup buttermilk (1/2 T. vinegar + 1/2 c. milk* and let sit for about 1 min.)

*You may also substitute this for powdered milk


Combine all dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Stir in the buttermilk until the dough is moist. Knead 6-8 times on a floured surface. Pat out to about 1 inch in thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter or glass rim. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 375 F for 17-18 minutes or until lightly browned.
