Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix together the buttermilk, oil, and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in the flour and mix until all ingredients are combined.
  2. Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. If dough is sticky knead in a little extra flour. Pat the dough out to about a 1/2-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut dough into pieces. Place into an oiled cast iron skillet. Allow biscuits to rest in the pan for 10 minutes.
  3. Bake in a preheated 425 degree F (220 degrees C) until nicely browned, about 20 minutes.

I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil. That was the only change I made. I dropped these into greased muffin tins instead of messing with cutting them so they wouldn't have a chance to turn out tough. These turned out so good--flaky and really just........YUMMY.

The flavor wasn't bad. Maybe I rolled them too flat or cooked them to long, but they were flat and hard. I called them brick biscuits when I served them. I like the other mayonnaise buscuits on this site much better. These also take three times the time to prepare and also makes three times the mess. I will not make again.

I have been making biscuits by this recipe since I was in elementary school and it works every time if you do it right! You need to use SELF-RISING, SOFT WHEAT flour, which is not as commonly available elsewhere as it is in the South. Good brands are White Lily or Hudson Cream -- NOT a hard wheat flour like Pillsbury,

Great recipe, especially when you need something in a pinch! I added a tsp. of garlic powder and used melted butter vs. veg oil cutting the amount in half. I baked these in muffin cups lined with paper liners sprayed with a little Pam which made things a lot easier!

I submitted a similar recipi,(Mayonaise Biscuits, by Georgie Brent) but I think this one is a vast improvement! Mine were drop bicuits and this recipi is for rolled and cut,and they turn out more uniform and fluffier. Bravo Debbie!

I also agree with others, this reminds me of the biscuits my sister, grandmother and a great-grandmother used to make----but, the mayo is an addition and must make the difference as I could never get them to turn out like this recipe. Hoorah!!

These were good, but I'd really hoped for a lighter, fluffier biscuit. They were a little on the dense side, but had good flavor. These were a nice addition to our chicken dinner.
