Great recipe as good as KFC any day! One tip on cutting biscuit's if you don't allready know. Don't twist the cutter while cutting the biscuit, it can seal the biscuit edges and cause it not to rise properly. Just cut straight down. I know cuz thats what I did! My mom set me right with this tip lol!

OMG!!! Delicious!! doesn't even cover it!

i'm an american girl living in the UK... NO KFC biscuits! they are my all time favorite buttermilk type biscuits and i haven't found a recipe to match them yet.

I substituted butter for the shortening (dont get crisco here!) and buttermilk for the milk, increased the portion to 12... and it was rising perfectly in my oven... beautiful fluffy, light buttery biscuits.. yum yum... 5 stars isn't enough! Thank you!

PERFECT biscuits. Doubled the recipe for 5 of us and it was perfect. Going into my "favorites" file immediately. Thank you so much for posting! P.S. Brushed the tops with melted butter before baking - highly recommended.
