The Best Homemade Biscuits

Ok, folks, I have finally DONE it!! The best homemade biscuits I have ever made. It took a lot of failures and hockey puck like biscuits, but I can make a perfect buttermilk biscuit thanks to themerchantbaker.  I have made these several times and they come out perfect each time.  They are so good my husband requests them almost every weekend.  I have never been able to produce a light, fluffy and yet tasty biscuit. I do mean never.  If you have the same problem give this recipe a try.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk.  Working from the outside start bringing the flour into the buttermilk very gently just until it starts to come together. Do not vigorously stir the mixture like a cake batter.  The dough will be somewhat wet and sticky.

Flour a clean surface generously.  Keep extra flour on hand so you can add as you knead the dough. Flour your hands, bring the dough together and start lightly folding the dough in half.  Gently knead by turning and folding.  Do this about 6 to 10 times until the dough comes together and is beginning to feel smooth.
