These biscuits were amazing! I tweaked the recipe a little bit though and made them as fattening as possible. I substituted 1/2 a stick of melted butter for the oil and used 2% milk mixed with half and half and a splash of white vinegar for the buttermilk (didnt have buttermilk). I suggest decreasing the sugar to 1Tbl however if you are pairing these with sausage gravy because the sweetness of the biscuit kinda cuts through the gravy and makes it taste a little off. very delicious :)

This was my 1st attempt at making biscuits. They looked all right and the recipe is an easy one but unfortunately they were flavorless. Maybe they needed more salt, I don't know, but I'm going to try another recipe and I hope I have better luck.
