Brilliant biscuits...and very forgiving. Making these was a comedy of errors. Started out making 1/2 a batch and then forgot that's what I was doing. Had dry ingredients and yeast for half a batch and butter and liquid for a full batch in the bowl. Had to stop, proof more yeast, double all the dry ingredients and remix. Even after all that these biscuits were light, delicious and attractive. Hint: cut biscuits out half the size they will eventually be because they really will double in size, mostly out not up. I've got some saucer-sized yummy biscuits.
This was a good biscuit recipe. I did need to add a bit more flour at the end to bring it all together. I would consider the texture more light and fluffy than flaky. I was looking for flaky. Still very good and convienent.
These are good biscuits, mine had a faint yeast taste which is ok but I am not used to this flavor in biscuits, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
This is by far, one of the best biscuit recipes I have ever tried! The only thing I felt was that the mixture was quite wet when the liquid was incorporate in to the dry ingredients. More flour was needed to bring it all together. I got my recipe from the Best of Bridge cookbooks
I have been in search of a good biscuit recipe for the freezer for YEARS! I have found it! Glory! These are great! I doubled the yeast in them and left out 2 T. of the sugar and they dont rise lots but they do get bigger. Slighlty crunchy just on the outside and light on the inside. PERFECT! THANKS FOR POSTING!!!
Quite an interesting recipe . They turned out really good . I used fast rising yeast , just through it in with the flour, what could be easier. Great to have some in freezer when neede.
Laura, I was just looking to post the recipe for these wonderful biscuits and I saw that you already beat me to it. I discovered these two summers ago and have enjoyed them ever since. I have frozen batches of these and they turn out just as great as when they are freshly made. This is a wonderful recipe, fully deserving of 5 stars.
Biscuits are a huge hit in our house. Going to make a batch right away! Let you know the results - but knowing my crew I will be the "Martha" for whipping these up!!
Added some cheddar cheese. Didn't rise much but were flaky.
