Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe + the Best Sugar Cookie Recipe EVER

Most of us are in a state of  PCDDS- Post Christmas Diet Distress Syndrome. If you happen to be one of the lucky few who escaped the Christmas season with your waistline in tact, bless your heart… but I have two recipes that will have you trading your jeans in for leggings in no time!

But seriously, if you read my blog at all, you know that our family isn’t scared of butter. We eat healthy for most of our meals, but we definitely indulge in treats a couple times of week.

Baking biscuits from scratch was on my 30 in 30 list, and the weekend before Thanksgiving I decided to give it a go. I usually shy away from making recipes for the first time when serving guests, but we don’t consider our family to be a guest in our house, so I made them anyway.

I spent entirely WAY too long searching for the perfect biscuit recipe on Pinterest. What started as a search for a recipe led to looking at spring fashion, which then led to vacay research and then ended up with a search for a front door for our new house. Pinterest is a black hole, y’all. Don’t go in, you might come of out there and find out it’s three days later! Seriously, you.are.warned.

Classic Buttermilk Biscuits

Anyway, I chose a recipe from Better Homes & Gardens, because it looked simple and it used the word “classic” in the title. I consider myself to be pretty classic… old, boring, not a risk taker, so this is the one I chose:

They turned out perfect the very first time. And my goodness… they are delicious! I served them with an assortment of jellies, maple syrup and of course, honey butter. We didn’t have a single biscuit left!

These were flaky, buttery, delicious morning goodness! And oh, so easy! You probably have the ingredients in your house right now. Except for buttermilk… who keeps that on hand?

Last week, I posted on Instagram that I had found THE perfect sugar cookie recipe. Several people asked me to share, so here it is:

Best Sugar Cookie Recipe EVER

I will seriously never make another sugar cookie without using this recipe. You don’t have to chill the dough, I really did have every single ingredient in my kitchen already, they kept their shape perfectly and they are DELICIOUS! Santa said these were his favorite cookies he had ever eaten, and I know because I asked him myself!

And here’s, my last little baking tip for the day: use parchment paper! If you don’t, I’m not sure why you don’t love yourself, but you are worth the $3 it costs to buy yourself a roll!

Happy baking, y’all!
