    These are great! Nice and easy, and light and yummy. I get about 16 biscuits with this recipe. I like the versatility as well. I add cheese or garlic; whatever hits me at the time. I almost always add extra sugar.

      Yum! I made a brilliant accidental discovery - I rolled and cut the biscuits to thin. I "mushed" (highly regarded culinary technique) two of them together and baked anyways. I ended up with perfect sandwich biscuits for sausage/egg biscuits. They also worked perfectly with the chicken fried steak and milk gravy that was for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly - down to the "knead 14 times". That was why I didn't reroll the dough and cut thicker biscuits. They were wonderful!!

      These were by far and away the BEST biscuits I have EVER had!!! :0) I used coconut oil instead of shortning, I only added half a tablespoon of sugar and I rubbed the dry ingredients and coconut oil together. My husband gobbled them up and said that they were so light and delicious that he wouldn't mind having them every day!!! ;0) To be honest, they are so easy to throw together that if he REALLY wanted them everyday, it wouldn't be any trouble to make them for him!!!! :0) Thank you for a WONDERFUL recipe!!!!
