I usually just make the biscuit recipe on the side of the baking powder can, but I bought Trader Joe's baking powder, which doesn't have a recipe on it, so I turned to allrecipes for an alternative. My whole family loved these biscuits. I subbed butter for the shortening, but followed the recipe exactly otherwise. I made them as a drop biscuit, using an ice cream scoop to drop them on the cookie sheet. They were moist and tender, with great flavor- buttery, just barely sweet. I wonder a couple of things: if those who ended up with a dry biscuit rolled & cut their dough, which would add extra flour to the mix, and if the reviewer who complained of an overwhelming baking powder taste used 4 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons of baking powder, because these were great! Great as a side with dinner, for breakfast with jam or honey or sausage gravy, and I wouldn't hesitate to use this as a shortcake for strawberries & whipped cream. Thank you for a great biscuit recipe! I have added this to my recipe box!
