Have been using Allrecipes since the start and rarely post anything but THIS WAS REALLY GOOD. And so much easier than I thought biscuits had to be (no flour all over the counter, etc.). The recipe came together in about 5 mintues. Used beef dripping (lard) as I had it. Bearing in mind the instructions, I really tried to make sure I didn't "overwork" the dough/batter and did leave it slight sticky. Just squeezed up 9 larger biscuits, patted into rough rounds and left them to the oven. They were barely gold on top when the bottoms were brown -- so watch out, they could get away from you. But I found the recipe's timing to be accurate. I put these with some stew I pulled out of the freezer, but would also be great for breakfast as they're so fast. The texture is not so much flaky but very, very light and fluffy.
Have since made this on a holiday visit with friends -- found out we didn't have any milk so substituted some watered down sour cream and that worked brilliantly. This is so handy it'll have to be a keeper ... one of my "desert island recipes."
