Impression: These were very good. The dough was pretty wet, but the biscuits still turned out very well. They were also very buttery. (I might tone down the butter just a bit next time - see recommendations.)
I reduced the amount of Cream of Tartar to 1/4 tsp.
I used skim milk and mixed the butter and milk together before I added it to the dry ingredients. I had to cook them a little longer (about 15 mins).
I didn't use quite as much sugar as the recipe calls for. I reduced it by a very small amount (maybe by 1/2 tsp.).
Servings: This made 15 large biscuits for me.
Uses: I added blueberries and sprinkled some sugar and topped with creme fraische for dessert one night. The next morning, I used for breakfast sandwiches. The following evening, we served them with dinner. We are only 2 people, so 15 biscuits goes a long way with us! Great recipe. Next time, I might see if I can make 1/2 of it.
Recommendations: The only things that could have made these biscuits a little better was that they were just a little pale. Not sure how I might brown them up.
Maybe I might brush the tops with butter next time.
I think I might reduce the butter by 2 Tb. next time, or move them to the top rack. (I used the middle to prevent burning.)
Final word: If I'd used all of the Cream of Tartar, they might have turned out even more tender, but as it is, they're very, very good. I'll be making them again!
