    Darlene Summers's Note:

    These yeast biscuits do not have to rise. I got this recipe from my wonderful mother-in-law many years ago. I wish she was still here to enjoy them with me.

      These biscuits had a wonderful flavor, but didn't rise up as high as I expected. UPDATE: The flavor and texture of these biscuits were so wonderful, I had to try them again. This time I rolled them about 1 inch thick and instead of using my round cutter, I just cut them into squares with a knife. They rose up wonderfully and my family all agreed this are the best biscuits!

      I was touched by the introduction, what a nice thing to say. As far as the biscuits, they were easy to make and delicious. I'm not sure if you would consider this a compliment, but my kids thought they tasted like the biscuits from KFC. They alway scramble to eat the last one! Your MIL must have been a great cook, thank you so much for sharing her wondeerful recipe.

      Fantastic, gorgeous biscuits. Rose up like crazy and were wonderful in texture. My husband, who will not put a bite of food into his mouth that is not perfect and pristine, ate two big buiscuits before dinner tonight. I put in one third white whole wheat flour because I love it, and used 3/4 cup of butter instead of shortening. I also used the powdered buttermilk and they came out just fine. I had to bake them for 16 minutes, but then my oven is not exactly trustworthy and I have to keep an eye on everything I bake. Anyway, my very first try making biscuits with yeast, and it was an excellent success. Thanks, Darlene.
