Awesome smell when cooking! Also makes fantastic pizza crust! Just use a generous amount of flour when rolling out! Use lite beer, any brand as it all tastes the same when baked, for a few less calories. The biscuts that taste great... AND less filling! Big Scott
The buscuits were good, but you could certainly taste the beer. I used a light beer, but the taste was still prominent.
This is an excellent recipe! Instead of beer, I used a Scottish Ale, and served these marvelous biscuits with blue cheese. It made an excellent appetizer. One tip to avoid hard biscuits: Make sure you follow the directions and preheat the oven to 450 degrees and do not over knead the dough. These biscuits will come out nice flakey, and savory.
I enjoyed the ease, flavor and texture of these biscuits. Next time I am going to try baking them touching each other in a 9inch round cake pan and brush them with melted butter for more color.
I made this again, and again they're excellent. If yours are too hard, perhaps you used too much flour? They need to be a little sticky when you cut them. I went easy on the flour when cutting too. I wonder if it's the choice of shortening too... I used Crisco's no trans fat (the green can). They are not hard at all, though they are not "brown". These are the best I've tried. I did put some cornmeal on my pizza stone just in case of sticking. These are really great.
Very easy to make. I will make them again, but will use less beer than the recipe calls for. My family thought the taste was a little too strong, but gobbled them down nonetheless.
These came out flat, tasteless and hard. My husband fed them to the ducks in the pond behind our house.
This was the easiest and best tasting from scratch recipe I have ever tried. Will definately make these again.
