These are pretty good! I made the recipe exactly as directed. They were not the fluffiest I've ever eaten, but they are the fluffiest I have ever made! This is a start to getting my dream fluffy biscuits.

I also want to add that these make the best dumplings ever!!! Just make the biscuit dough as directed, drop into your soup and cook through!!! Thank you NcMysteryShopper!

I'm probably going to be written out of the will, but I'm tossing my mother's biscuit recipe in the trash! THIS is my new biscuit recipe. I made these for strawberry shortcake - added in about 1/4 cup sugar and sprinkled the tops with cinnamon sugar - and I couldn't resist tasting one shortly after taking them out of the oven. They were so pretty AND the taste and texture was perfect. Truly, this is a wonderful recipe and one that I will continue to use. Thanks for sharing!

I've never made biscuits that were anything but bricks. I used whole wheat flour - white hard spring wheat. They still turned out great! Yay!

Goodbye to cardboard tubes of biscuit dough! My former attempts at homemade biscuits came out as nice-looking golden brown hockey pucks! Carolina's biscuits came out perfect! Easy to mix together. I even tried to look like my mother used to, in her kitchen when I was young..I used my hands to mix, threw the dough onto my floured surface to knead it and used a mason jar as my cutter. The egg addition is what I think made it a bit dense, yet fluffy - and flavored like an egg bread. So I can see how it would make awesome shortcakes or dumplings. I liked it! Thanks for sharing.

Best buttermilk biscuit recipe I've found so far. Nice rise, flaky and moist with just the right amount of salt. Really good with blueberry preserves! Thanks for sharing.

I had left over buttermilk I wanted to use up so went looking for biscuits. Most I saw required a food processor which I don't have and then I found this one - lucky for me I did too as the end result was mile high, soft, flaky biscuits with the slight tang of buttermilk. So great. The only thing I did differant was brush the tops with a beaten egg before popping in the oven. A lot easier to make than I expected. Thanks so much for posting.

These were delicious. Being in NC myself I have tasted many Southern biscuits, these are as close as they get to Grandma's. I was glad to use up some leftover buttermilk. I didn't know what to do with the 2 Tbsp. buttermilk it called for in the recipe. Didn't need it really. I am high elevation so I used the convection part of the oven and they came out perfect. Thanks for posting NcMysteryShopper.

Oooooh, these were good. I added more sugar (1/4 cup) to make these into shortcakes. I also used whole wheat flour because that's what I had on hand--they still turned out great. 8 minutes was perfect timing for a perfect shortcake.

Another great biscuit recipe! My family enjoys homemade biscuits on Sunday mornings. I surprised them with a different recipe today and they loved it! These biscuits came out not only beautiful, but had a nice crisp texture on the flip side and creamy soft texture on the inside. YUM, will definitely make them like this again. Thanks for sharing the way you make biscuits! (Made for Bevy Tag 10/08) ~V
