    SaffronMeSilly's Note:

    This recipe actually came in the instruction manual of my kitchenaid mixer. I have modified it a little as I have experimented with making biscuits. In the south biscuits are the building blocks of any good breakfast. Once you've made a good biscuit, the options are endless. I usually make these on the weekend. My favorites are sausage gravy over biscuits, bacon or sausage egg and cheese, and jelly/jam biscuits.

      Thanks-you! I have been making biscuits all my adult life and have migrated to new ones every few years. This one is a keeper.

      Delicious biscuits. I used 50/50 unbleached white and whole wheat flours, a more heart healthy margarine and skim milk soured with lemon juice. They came out lovely and the dough was a dream to work with. I got 9 biscuits using my standard cutter and with 3 for dinner there are only 2 left!
