Buttermilk Biscuits – #southerncomfort

A southern staple is buttermilk biscuits. Great with gravy, jelly, or eggs and bacon. You can also personalize these with all kinds of different flavors and ingredients. What’s your favorite biscuit recipe?
1/2 cup cold butter
2 1/4 cups self-rising soft-wheat flour
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
Self-rising soft-wheat flour
2 tablespoons melted butter
Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas.
Cover and chill 10 minutes.
Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed.
With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle.
Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour.
Fold dough over onto itself in 3 sections, starting with 1 short end.
Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle.
Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface.
Cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place, side by side, on a parchment paper-lined or lightly greased jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Brush with 2 Tbsp melted butter.

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
