Sarah Bug picked this recipe out for me to make. She had made one before that was sweet, and was disappointed that this wasn't similar. (I think the one she made used Bisquik, which I don't use.) This was easy to put together and had a good flavor. I used the stand mixer to cut in the butter (with the whisk attachment) and to mix/knead (with the mixer attachment). I didn't knead it any more because I didn't want to make the biscuits tough. The recipe doesn't say how thin to make them, so I decided on 3/4 inch. I used my standard lazy technique, which involves cutting a rectangle into square biscuits. They were done after 19 minutes. I found them a bit bland, but that might have been because I used Miller High Life. :P Next time I might try a slightly more flavorful beer. Unlike Iowahorse, I didn't think the biscuits were dry.
We used this recipe for the dumplings in Chicken and Dumplings. They turned out great and the flavor was a very good...sort of savory. We're going to try this recipe for biscuits soon.
Not too bad at all,..just a little dry for my tastes.
