Biscuit recipes are often passed down from generation to generation – and this recipe for Sweet Buttermilk Biscuits is our family’s go-to recipe. It’s a fairly basic recipe, and in our opinion, simple is best when it comes to buttermilk biscuits as long as the results are light, moist and flakey like ours!
Our recipe also has a touch of sweetness that we think complements savory dishes quite nicely. These sweet buttermilk biscuits can also be used for desserts such as strawberry shortcake, and you can adjust the sugar in the recipe by a tablespoon or two depending on how sweet you like your dessert biscuits.
My husband Jack also likes to sprinkle sugar on the crust of savory dishes (such as chicken pot pie or dumplings) and he’s done that again with these sweet buttermilk biscuits – but feel free to skip that step if you’d prefer.
