When I was young, I really wanted to learn how to make southern dishes. To start, I wanted to make biscuits. This was before the time of Pinterest and online recipes, so I had to find a real cookbook. I asked my mom for a cookbook for Christmas and she gave me an Anne of Green Gables one. It had all the recipes from the movies and in that was an amazing biscuit and gravy recipe.
I decided I would skip the gravy because all I wanted was buttered biscuits. I bought buttermilk for the first time and threw away the first bottle after I opened it because I thought it was spoiled and smelled bad. After buying a second, I noticed it was the same so I asked and was told that is how it was. Definitely a lesson learned. I made buttermilk biscuits with a 3 inch cutter and baked them until they were light and fluffy. It was a yummy treat to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of warm tea. Lathered with butter, these are wonderful. They are just as good sliced in half with some fruit jelly or cheese. This has been my go to recipe ever since I discovered it.
