      Can't believe I'm lucky enough to be the first to rate this great recipe. Made this for our morning biscuits and with one rise it was perfect, mixed them up and let them rise while I was enjoying that first cup of coffee and waiting for everyone else to get up, then popped them in the oven and out came these perfect, light biscuits. The only thing I did differant was to cut the recipe in half as there's only two of us and they came out great. Directions are easy to follow and we couldn't be happier with them and will be making again.

      This is such a great recipe! I had to try it twice to get it to turn out right--but it was worth it! I cut the recipe in half--and put the biscuits on a baking tray to rise. They rose a kind of "spreading" way instead of rising nice & tall. The 2nd time, I used a 8X8 pan (with sides) & that worked perfectly. I actually increased the yeast to 2 tsp & used about 1 tbsp butter instead of shortening. I also had to add more flour; the dough was a bit wet/sticky--while it was still a messy process (I am still learning to roll, cut dough!); the effort was worth it! Thanks so much for sharing. Biscuits were so soft & fluffy!

      Perfect. Great taste and texture. Easy. Fast. Fool-proof. Also one of those recipes that'll stick in your mind forever and everyone loves you for it. I finished mine with more butter and flaky salt right out of the oven.
