Biscuits seem like an easy bake item. But to make good biscuits that are flaky and are not heavy and dense is a bit tricky. It's imperative that you don't touch the dough too much and that you use SUPER cold butter and buttermilk. I freeze my biscuits for at least 10 minutes after I have cut the squares just to make sure the butter is chilled again before placing them in a hot, hot 425°F oven. Fresh out of the oven slathered with honey and butter is Heaven!
