WOW!These are the biscuits I've been looking for all my life!I made a batch with whole wheat pastry flour and a little less shortening and they were still delicious!I used these to make dumplings for chicken and dumplings and,with a little sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top,the top of a peach cobbler.Both variations were great!I will never use another biscuit recipe again!
I don't know what I did wrong, but these came out hard as rocks and definetly not light and airy. I will probably try again but I had to resort to frozen biscuits for dinner.
Foolproof and versatile! Try it for cinnamon rolls (use 1/2 shortening). Dress it up rolling it out in layers w/ butter like crescent rolls. So EASY and tasty.
My husband loves these! I didn't have any buttermilk, so I substituted 1/2 yogurt to 1/2 milk. They taste like Hungry Jacks, according to DH. Thanks for sharing!
My fiance loved these. They were tasty and easy to make. I also didn't get much rise during the proofing stage, but did while baking.
This is the BEST biscuit recipe that I have ever made. Thanks Denise. Happy Baking, Bonnie
These are great with fried chicken, with sausage gravy, & especially with strawberries & cream! They are very easy to make & the kids eat them up!
Very good, but did not get much of a rise out of these even after waiting 1 hour.
