Dutch Oven Buttermilk Biscuits- OH SO GOOD!

Biscuits in the Dutch oven are better! Up until now, our biscuit making was either out of a can, frozen, or from Bisquick. We had never really bothered to attempt to make a homemade, flaky biscuit in the Dutch oven or, for that matter, inside with our regular oven.
Well, there are all sorts of biscuit recipes out there: some with buttermilk, some with cold butter, some with oil, some with eggs, and so on. Seems like everybody has a different way of creating, what is, seemingly, a fairly simple little circle of bread. Matt’s requirement for this venture was to make these biscuits flaky. So, to the internet we went- searching for a flaky biscuit recipe.

Dutch Oven Apple Crisp

So, last week we made apple crisp in the dutch oven. This isn't our first attempt at apple crisp, though.
