WOW!!! I've been trying to make biscuits for years, and these are just what I've been looking for. My neighbor suggested finding a recipe with cream of tartar, and I think that made all the difference. They were light and flaky. I used half margarine & half crisco, and they were delish!!! Can't wait to make them for our yearly treat of sausage gravy & biscuits for the crowd at the cottage this summer.
I made these the last two mornings- yesterday, I had a bit of trouble (and I think it was because I added all 3/4 cup of milk all at once, maybe I even added too much milk- but it turned out really runny.) So I tried it again today, and what do you know? They turned out perfect! I added small amounts of milk at a time, even though it ended up being almost right at 3/4 cup...odd how that worked out. Thanks for the awesome biscuit recipe- and you were right, they were great smothered in gravy ;-) Made for Fall '09 PAC.
