    This is an old recipe--I will not tell where from--but it is 1960 original Kentucky biscuit scaled down from an original I have. It is absolutely to die for. You will never make another biscuit after this.

      Oh wow! These are sooo good. I've been searching for a great biscuit recipe and this is it! Thanks so much for sharing! -I didn't have baking powder so i used an extra 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp cream of tartar. I actually threw in another 1/4 tsp baking soda(I like tall biscuits :)), making it 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp cream of tartar. They are fantastic!

      Made this for our Sunday breakfast today. Used the vinegar in the milk trick, pulsed the dry ingredients in the food processor, used butter as suggested by another reviewer, added the milk and patted the whole works into a Pam-sprayed 9x9 pan. Scored it into portions and baked about 20 minutes until nice and golden. Served with home-style gravy. Will be making this one again.
