This recipe is so darn easy! They turned out perfectly! I just dropped them on a cookie sheet instead of rolling and cutting them out too. Even easier!

These were really great, especially considering how easy they were. They were surprisingly flaky for a biscuit that has no shortening and was just dropped on the cookie sheet instead of rolled out! Brushed a little butter on top to give it a little extra flavor and they were wonderful! Definately going to be my "go to" recipe for biscuits now! Thanks!

I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe that was easy for years....not anymore. This recipe is fantastic just the way it is written. I would suggest doubling the recipe if you like rather large biscuits. I did and it yielded 13. My biscuits and gravy were great! If you try this recipe, you won't be sorry.
