I didn't know biscuits could be so easy to make. I get best results using butter instead of shortening. I make this often. Great recipe!
Excellent biscuits. Have to admit, I used a pastry cutter-I didn't want the mess on my hands. Very sticky dough, ended up adding at least 1/2 cup more flour on the board and got sticky hands anyway. It was worth it.
This is the best biscuit recipe I've ever made! They came out very light and fluffy and rose beautifully in the oven. Any biscuit recipe I usually try leaves me with flat biscuits. I really liked the method of mixing the milk and shortening in at the same time; it cut prep time and kept the shortening from melting as I cut it in. Next time I make these, I will use Splenda instead of sugar (we are diabetics). I will update my review for that change.
GREAT RECIPE! I used buttermilk & brushed the tops with buttermilk before baking. I cut mine very thick - 2-3" and increased the baking time to 17 mins. They're light, fluffy - look the way you want biscuits to look.
Perfect recipe! I put the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl and swirl it around a little bit. I then add the shortening and milk to the dry ingredients. Mix with the dough hook until incorporated. Scrape down the bowl. It's going to be a little sticky. I put a 1/4 cup of flour on the counter for the dough. Flip the dough around and make a 1/2"-3/4" disk. With my 2" circle cutter I'm able to get 6 biscuits! Perfect for my family of four. Bake for 10 min and I turn it off. Leave the biscuits in there for an additional 2-4 minutes. Perfection!!! The kids love it with white country gravy or honey butter. Yummy!!!
Just made biscuits and gravy using this recipe for the biscuits! They are delicious. I used butter instead of shortening. They came out great, not dry and nice flavor. Thank you for sharing Ron & Joyce! This is a keeper and will be making them again. :-)<br/><br/>Lisa
Very good but at 14 minutes still not very brown. May make again and brush with butter at the end.
The texture was good and crumbly like I like but I would cut the salt next time as i felt they were a bit salty.
Yum! Very east to make and they rose beautifully. Did taste a little bitter though. Maybe needed more sugar?
These were good! Mine turned out thin though. But I had a schedule issue and had to let them sit before cooking - I am sure that is what caused it. I used only 1 tsp of salt after reading other peoples reviews.
