I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe for a long time, and I came across this recipe. It is a copy cat recipe for Church's biscuits from I tried it out, and it was wonderful! My husband loved them too! You should try it for yourself.

I liked these! The texture was great. Very tender. Next time I make these, because I will absolutely make them again, I will use butter instead of shortening, I will increase the sugar by a teaspoon, and I will actually put the biscuits into the oven with some of the honey and butter mixture on them from the beginning and then brush them again after baking. Great recipe!

I really liked the flavor and tenderness of these, but I think next time I will roll them out and cut them. The drop shapes cooked a little too unevenly for me, but only because I have trouble not making them too big :) I also used butter instead of shortening, and it worked great. Just remember to cut the salt down a little if you are using salted butter. Thanks for posting!

These were great. They puffed up beautifully and were really tender and soft. I agree with one of the previous reviewers. There was a detectable tang, i think it came from the cream of tartar. Because i know that gives snickerdoodles the same tang. I'll definetly make these again just without the cream of tartar. Oh and i listened to some of the other reviews and only used 1 tsp baking powder and 3 tsp sugar, i kept everything else the same.
