Extra Buttery Drop Biscuits

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is relaxing and making the most of the day before Dread Monday comes around.

I am really particular about my biscuit: They have to be fluffy, yet have a slight crunch on the outside, and really freaking salty and buttery. Also they must always pull apart effortlessly.

The reality is that making biscuits is pretty dang easy once you get the right mix of ingredients. And the one thing to remember here is that everything needs to be REALLY COLD. You can use buttermilk in this recipe, but I never have buttermilk on hand. Who does?! I like to use half and half with white vinegar. Daniel is still sleeping, and he’s going to be SO excited when he wakes up, because he’ll get one of my famous biscuit sandwiches.
