    Buttermilk is simply a wimpy version of yogurt. When a recipe calls for buttermilk, replacing it with yogurt is sooooo much better. This morning, yogurt and butter biscuits with home-made blueberry jam (itself made from blueberries we picked). 4 cups flour 4 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1 1/2 tsp salt some sugar 2 sticks butter 2 cups yogurt (homemade if possible, otherwise use unsweetened without chemicals) 1. Preheat oven to 375°. 2. mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. 3. mix flour mixture and butter by hand or in a food processor until sand-like. 4. Add yogurt and mix just until mixture comes together 5. Dump out onto a floured surface 6. Roll dough to 1-inch thickness. 7. Cut to 2-3 inch circles (use a glass or a jar). 8. Place biscuits onto cookie sheet or cast iron skillet (my favorite). 9. Bake until lightly browned, 18 to 20 minutes. Yummy!!! Also good with cheese and eggs.
