Oh my GOODNESS!!! If you've been looking for the perfect biscuit recipe----you can stop looking. These are SO good! I made them for supper tonight with a big pot of bean soup. They are very easy to make. Very quick--you can put these together and have them on the table in 25 minutes. They're light, flaky, buttery, delicious!!! Thank you for posting this recipe!

These are very good! And not only are they incredibly easy, but they come together quite fast -- perfect for a last-minute addition to a meal. My house is quite dry, so I required about 2 extra teaspoons of milk to get the mixture to come together. I baked these for the full 20 minutes; the biscuits had a lovely crunchy top and bottom, while the insides were very tender.

I used all purpose flour, but still added the salt and only a half teaspoon of baking powder, followed the recipe to a T, baked for 15 min. The most wonderful golden bisquits I have ever ate, family too, yes I did share, slap my hands. After out of the over I brushed with real butter. Perfect.
