Easy Butter Biscuits
Recently for a weekend breakfast I was looking for a quick and easy biscuit recipe to go alongside some grits, eggs, bacon, and sausage patties for a tasty, hearty meal for the boys. I decided to try out this super easy, and buttery, looking recipe I had seen on Pinterest. It came together in no time flat, and made one 8x8 pan. I only cut them into 4 large (man-sized) biscuits which worked well for our breakfast, but you can cut them into smaller pieces if you'd like. They were fairly thin, so not the easiest for slicing in half and adding goodies to the middle, but I still cut mine open and added some of my favorite blackberry jam. Delicious! My son really loved the flavor of these.
