    Susan Dillard's Note:

    I got this recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine in 1979, and have been making them ever since. They are the easiest biscuits to make and turn out perfectly every time. Bonus, there's no messy shortening to mess with!

      Wonderful! I made one change and one unintentional (insignificant) change. To "soften" the biscuit, I used 1-1/4 cups cake flour and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour in place of 2 cups all-purpose flour. I accidentally used heavy cream versus whipping cream, but really there's not much difference. I loved them! They didn't rise terribly high but that could be my fault as I placed them touching as that's how I usually make biscuits. *definitely* on the re-make list!

      Great biscuits. It was so nice to not have to cut in butter and shortening and a good way to use farm cream.

      I made these Sunday. They were very easy to make. But I thought they were a little hard. I will probably make them again because they were easy, very easy, but I wanted a softer biscuit.
