These are AWESOME biscuits! I can't believe biscuits this good can be made from Bisquick! It's so fast and easy. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I used the trick of adding a little vinegar to regular milk to make my own. My biscuits turned out so light and fluffy. Thank you so much Kay for sharing your recipe. Believe me, I will be making these again and again!

The bisquick is as close as you will get to the "dry mix" used for those biscuits. Made from shortening and self rising flour we made up "pounds" of it at a time and used it all on morning shifts. But no sugar was ever put in the original. Sr flour, shortening and buttermilk then real butter brushed on top. I've made millions!! And handle them e-a-s-y!! Happy baking!

I am so anti-Bisquick...yet I've been seeing all these recipes using it that have me "curious" so I got a small box. I always make biscuits from scratch BUT I was so tired that I wanted a little shortcut. Fiance took a bite and hadn't even finished swallowing when he said "OH MY GOD, these are good!"...so I guess I'm not so anti-Bisquick after all. Thanks!

I can't tell you how pleased I am with this recipe! The last time I tried to make homemade buttermilk biscuits I slaved for ages and ended up with flat hockey pucks...so disappointing. So I was a bit leary to try this but really don't much care for the canned biscuits either, so I was determined. Well, it's been so many years since I had Cracker Barrel's that I don't remember how they taste, so I can't rate on that basis, but these were EASY, FAST, and YUMMY! I rolled too thin too and got more like 16 biscuits, but that was fine. Thought I'd have enough for a couple of meals, but between my husband, 3 year old son, 1 year old daughter, and me...they were all gone the night I made them. I will totally keep this recipe and make it again and again, thank you!

These biscuits were wonderful! They do taste almost identical to Cracker Barrel's recipe! It was a very easy dough to work. I love using Bisquick because it's ready to use.

These biscuits maybe good but they are definitly NOT Cracker Barrel's recipe. I have a friend who works at one of their stores and makes biscuits there every day and this is NOT their recipe. They start with self rising floor, no bisquick is ever involved in then at all.

These were delicious! Have to say the first time I tried them with a mix other than Bixquick and it did not work. With the Bisquick they were perfect. Quick and easy.

One thing for sure Cracker Barrel does not use Bisquick. The thing that they use that makes them light and fluffy is lard.

I made these for breakfast this morning and they are wonderful! You really can't tell they were made with Bisquick (although I personally do not have a problem with the way Bisquick tastes). I used powdered buttermilk and accidentally put 2 tablespoons of butter but they still came out great! Thanks for posting.
