This is the first time I've ever made biscuits. I was very apprehensive because I'd read a lot of how tricky they can be, but I made these twice, and both times they were delicious! The outside was crispy and flaky, and the inside soft and doughy. I don't have a pastry cutter, so I just grated my butter, stuck the grated butter in the freezer, and then tossed it with the dry ingredients by hand until the batter resembled coarse crumbs. (Note: I've made these biscuits twice. The first time I grated a stick of butter that was in the fridge and the process was rather easy, and not too messy since I held the stick by the wrapper. The second time I used a stick of already frozen butter, and I found that the grating process was more difficult, but the biscuits came out the same both ways). Also, I don't have a biscuit cutter, so I just used a glass, and I had no problems with my biscuits rising. I absolutely love this recipe, and will be using this from now on for any biscuits I made in the future.
