butter, chilled and diced
These have worked for me EVERY time I've made them. The only thing I do different is roll the dough a little thinner, then fold over once and cut as usual. This creates a natural "center" that the biscuit opens right to. Love this with honey on top.
Sugar in a biscuit? This Southerner says NO!
Perfect biscuits! Firm enough to stand up to a dousing of gravy, but moist and fluffy enough to eat with jam. For those who are having trouble with these biscuits, flour makes a world of difference in a biscuit recipe. If you live in the South, try White Lily or another low protein flour. If you live in the North or West, replace 2-3 Tbsp of all purpose flour with cake or Wondra flour for the best results. Northern flour, especially the nicer brands, have too much protein to make a good biscuit.
These are nice and light biscuits. I used 1-cup of buttermilk in place of the 3/4-cup Milk and they were delicios! "Never Fail" stands up to its promise! I recommend using these for berry shortcakes or topped with a peach and some juice, with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a keeper!
This is the biscuit recipe I've searched everywhere for! Flaky on the outside, soft and thick on the inside. I doubled the recipe and made about 18 instead of 24, and I think they were the perfect size.
The only suggestion I would make would be to grate the butter in a food processor and then add it to the dry ingredients; it mixes right in and is much faster.
Very good! Nice and flaky! I don't have any biscuit cutters, so I always use the bottom of a glass jar that is about the same size around to cut the dough, and dip it in flour before cutting each one. Works the same for me! Thank you Madison!
These biscuits were great! I have never had success with homemade biscuits until I tried this recipe. They were nice and flaky with a hint of sweetness. They were simply perfect...not to mention quick and easy to make! Thanks a million!
Quick, easy and delicious! I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and they are yummy!
