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.
I brushed the tops with butter and sprinkled with garlic powder. great biscuits. Will be making again.
First I would like to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE. These biscuits are truly great tasting, and quite easy to make. I substituted 1/4C low-fat butter for 1/4C shortening; and the biscuits are amazing. Melt in your mouth, not in your hands! They will go great served by themselves or with some gravy for a great breakfast. p.s. The smell when they were ready was beautiful. Reminded me so much of home when my mother would make breakfast on Sunday. Called my girlfriend immediately and raved about it!
Very nice flavor. So easy to put together. But the crust is on the hard side. Not sure if it was me or the recipe though. Thanks for posting the recipe.
This was the best biscuit ever, and I've been making biscuits for fifty years.
Who knew it was so easy to make great biscuits? Thanks for sharing this gem!
This is a great biscuit recipe!!!! Thanks!
We rejoiced with this biscuit recipe. So good, and so wonderful slathered with homemade grape jam. I needed to find a great biscuit recipe, and found it. I followed this precisely, even using my older pastry cutter to mix the exact cup of shortening into the dry ingredients. I just made sure the shortening was really mixed in, but not over mixed, the same held true with the buttermilk addition. To much over mixing produces bricks, but in this case they were light, fluffy and scrumptious. Will use this quite often, I can see on Sunday mornings this will bring everybody to the farm. Thank you so much!
I've never been able to make good home made biscuits until today. I made these and went by the recipe but used 1/4 cup of butter in place of the shortening. They were awesome!! They were light and flaky and looked like the picture. My husband loved them. I will make these again most defiantly.
