A beautiful recipe for a high, fluffy KFC type of biscuit. I originally did this with self rising flour, but have adjusted it to be easier and faster with Bisquick--the same great taste and flavor is still there or I would not be posting it.


  1. Mix all ingredients well and make sure it feels like "velvet”. If it is at all sticky (due to humidity or altitude) just dust with a little flour.
  2. Roll out on a floured surface to about ½-inch thick (I personally prefer ¾-inch--bake a little longer for high risers) and cut (or if you are my age roll them out by hand).
  3. Put on a greased cookie sheet. If you want the crust old fashioned, leave as is. If you want it shiny and crisp, brush with milk.
  4. Bake at 450°F for about 20 minutes or till done.

made this recipe the directions said 450degrees for 20 minutes, halfway through I had to lower it because they would have burned, they cooked a little to crispy but I am going to make another batch and change the temperature....

Great simple recipe for biscuits. Tastes just like KFC without the fat - at least I used Heart Smart Bisquick and fat free buttermilk. I didn't roll out either, just dropped scoops on the pan and it cooked up in about 10 minutes or so.
