"These are a delicious cross between a roll and a biscuit. You roll them out like a biscuit, and they rise like a roll."

1 (.25 ounce) package
active dry yeast
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. When oven reaches that temp turn oven off- then put biscuits in for one hour to rise. Perfect! ** Update: We did the same as previous suggestions- only use 1/2 the amount of shortening and use butter for teh other 1/2 remaining amount. Definitely makes these much more flavorful. WOW! We just made these today for breakfast. We followed recipe exactly. My one recommendation - you MUST have the biscuits touching the other biscuits on the cookie sheet as they bake. We have made 2 other recipes and didn't put them to each other and they didn't rise. We put these together and they were perfect! I am beyond thankful for this recipe! No more Grands biscuits for us- they don't even compare to these. Thank you so much Karin! ** Also- this allrecipes.com site is the best **
I used this recipe in one of my culinary classes, as a biscuit to use for our bread baskets. i was disappointed with the end result... the dough was stiff, the biscuits never rose, and the flavor was lacking.
I LOVE these biscuits. These are exactly what I've been looking for!I have always been disappointed with any other biscuit I've made from scratch (hard, dry) and I can't stand canned biscuits (sodium galore!). Yummy! I make the whole batch, freeze them, and reheat them a few at a time in the oven.
I've been looking for a recipe like this. Sooo good. They taste just like our favorite biscuits at Cracker Barrel. My husband loves them.
Delicious! I had to use powdered buttermilk, but they came out wonderfully. My family ate heaps of them and my son said I need to make these from now on. A keeper!
These biscuits turned out great! They really are a cross between a biscuit and a roll. I made enough to freeze and pull a few out at a time. A keeper!
These were very good and easy to make. Mine did not rise that much but I think that was do to my yeast. We enjoyed them and will make them again.
Instead of making biscuits, I wrapped 1 lb of
pre-cooked cocktail sausages with the dough and then baked according to the directions. This recipe is definitely part of my permanent collection. The next time I used margarine instead of shortening and we couldn't tell the difference.
