This is a quick, tender & light buttermilk biscuit, which requires no kneading. I took a couple different recipes of my grams and combined aspects of both and this is what I ended up with. The family loved them. Reheats well too! Nothing better than a hot biscuit from the oven slather with butter. Yum! Enjoy!

    Stir in milk, just until all is moistened. Pour mix on a floured surface and pat together with floured hands. Do not knead. Pat out to about 3/4 inch thick and cut with 3 inch biscuit cutter, do not twist as you cut. * Could also be rolled out and cut.

    Place on ungreased sheet or line with parchment as I did. They can also be baked in a round cake pan. Brush tops with buttermilk or butter. Place in oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until lightly golden and no longer doughy.
