wow these are great! 2/3 cups milk i think was a bit too much. i had to add a little more biscuit mix. i also used a heaping tsp of baking powder. they came out so big and soft! i don't usually use a recipe that calls for biscuit mix, but i'm glad i did! i'll have to make and keep the biscuit mix recipe from this site.

This recipe produced very tall flakey, moist buiscuits, but they tasted a lot like baking powder, so next time I think I'll reduce that ingredient since it's already in the buscuit mix. They look beautiful though.

These were really good, and so easy! I manage to screw up even the most simple and highly-rated biscuit recipe so I'm happy to have found a foolproof one! The only thing is (and this is most likely somehow my fault) they are a little bit dense, not as light and fluffy as I had hoped. But I will be making these again and again!

These turned out very tender and very moist inside. I couldn't even tell the vinegar was there. I used a homemade biscuit mix for this. Very good biscuit and I will make this recipe again.

I felt so-so on this recipe - 3 stars because I feel like part of it was my fault. We didn't have any malt vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar, which was probably a mistake as the biscuits were rather vinegarry. This would have been ok, but we could also taste the baking soda - not a good flavor :P The didn't seem that much different than the recipe on the box, so I think that I'll stick to that one. Sorry!
