These were great. Just like my mom used to make. They were quick and easy to make, and light and fluffy. They have a great flavour that would complement a lot of meals. They're great straight from the oven, with a little bit of butter. So good! I will defintetly make these again. Thanks!

These are great biscuits, just like my grandma makes! She doesn't use measurements, so when trying to explain usually only confused me. This recipe really helps. Thanks

Awesome fool-proof biscuits! I should know, I always find a way to mess them up, but not these ones!

makes a good biscuit, but not salty enough for me. i used butter instead of shortning, and next time i'll prob use 1tsp of salt. good though!

Glad you saved it!! They were not only simple to prepare but they tasted great! They went very well with my vegetable soup and made a cold day even warmer.

I made 6 huge biscuits which were soft and fluffy. It was very easy to make and it didn't take much time. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was delicious with butter and jelly. It's a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

I used unsalted butter (as I do in all recipes that call for shortening / margarine) and I also added grated cheddar. I used 1/2 the batch to wrap hot dogs to make pigs in a blanket (bake same time and temp as called for in the recipe) and they turned out GREAT! This recipe is a keeper :)

This recipe yielded six very large, fluffy, wonderful biscuits. I used low fat butter instead of shortening. Thank you very much!
