    GRANNY'S BISQUITS. These are the bisquits my granny use to make(God rest her soul) I watched her make these so many times when I was a kid. I have never found a recipe that comes close to these. They are very moist and delicious.

      For not being chock full of fat like all my other biscuit recipes, these were really good. I dredged mine in melted margarine instead of shortening and used "buttermilk" that I made with milk and lemon juice since I didn't have "real" buttermilk on hand. They were surprisingly flavorful and had a nice buttery crunch on the outside that reminded me of the crunch that pancakes and hush puppies get sometimes from being fried. I found them to be just a little too salty, but that may have been from using margarine instead of shortening. I will probably try them again with shortening soon. Thanks!

      These were incredibly easy and the short list of ingredients made it even better. I love the texture of the inside and how soft and moist they are but yet the outside gets a bit of a slight crunch to them. I love these!!

      fantastic bisquits. i was looking for the perfect bisquit recipe to make chicken bisquit sandwichs. this was perfect recipe. they were moist on the inside and a little crispy and flaky on top. i will make this bisquit recipe often. it's very important not to kneed it to much or your bisquits will be tough.
