I got this recipe from a friend. She said this is one of her lifesaver recipes. Not fussy, easy, and quick, and the ingredients are just a few, all pantry essentials. These buttermilk biscuits are the perfect after school snack or pair it with a savoury meal or soup. An excellent treat or to complete a meal, these scrumptious biscuits are a must-have.
