      In the South, we call these Angel Biscuits (maybe for their lightness?). My grandmother O. made the best and I am so happy to have this recipe. They remind me of her. Thanks for sharing!

      Excellent biscuits! They came out so light. I mixed mine in the food processor and was careful not to overmix. We had a few as a side with dinner. I put the rest in the freezer and can't wait to bicuits and gravy this weekend for breakfast. Thanks for posting!

      I've been making these for a year now and think they are wonderful for a busy mother and baker! They are light and versatile: we have them as biscuits and sometimes I break of chunks (golf ball sized) and make a dimple in them, stuff it with cheese and onion and seal it up again and then bake as normal - my kids call these cheese puffs and adore them. I've even used the dough, flattened out, as a pie crust when I was short of time. Thank you SO much for this recipe!
