Very easy to make! My first biscuits from scratch! Thanks!
THANK YOU DOUGH RI MI FOR THIS RECIPE.. I stopped making biscuits because they were always awful... I've been told I either overwork or underwork the dough, use too much shortning or milk, I'm Just not a hand biscuit maker.. YOUR METHOD CAME OUT PERFECT. DH THOUGHT I'D BOUGHT THEM FROM THE BAKERY.
We relly liked these biscuits. The butter imparts a delicious flavour to the biscuits (the recipe in my BH&G cookbook calls for shortening). I prepared the recipe according to the directions omitting the sugar due to taste preference and agree with previous reviewers that this could be made without the use of a mixer quite easily but since the bowl and beaters went into the dishwasher cleanup was not an issue. Made for Fall '09 PAC.
These are very good biscuits. I did however skip using the mixer and mixed it all by hand per another reviewer's suggestion. I found it a very easy and quick recipe to put together. I do also think that pulling out and cleaning the kitchenaid for this was not neccessary at all. They came out very nice and soft and rose well in the oven. Made for PAC Fall 09.
DH had company and made these for our breakfast and even though I made a MAJOR mistake they turned out wonderful nice and soft inside with a lovely golden brown outside. I was trying to follow the recipe exactly as it's my first time making them and was looking in awe at the amount of baking powder (which by the way was perfect) and totally forgot to add the sugar and didn't notice the mistake until they were in the oven baking and I was putting the sugar bowl away - an embarrassing omission but fortunatly the taste was still great. Just think how good it'll be next time when I remember that critical piece. The only other comment I would add is that while this worked fine with my Kitchen Aid mixer I think it would be just as easy to do this all by hand and not have the mess of cleaning the mixer. All in all a simple and great tasting biscuit. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall - 09
