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 my new favorite breakfast sandwich recipe, so soft and light. Turned out perfect the first time and didn't take very long to double in size. My kids couldn't stop eating them. Thanks!

I've tried many recipes for bisquits and I am very glad that I found this one. My family and friends just love them. This is over all the number one recipe in my cook book
