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.

OH MAN! I have made countless biscuit recipes, and either I work them too much, or they don't rise, or the flavor isn't great...but these, are, PERFECT! I doubled the recipe so I could use my kitchenaid with a dough hook. Because I love butter, I did half butter and half shortening. I turned the dough out onto the floured coounter, but didn't knead it more (since I used the kitchenaid, I didn't want to overwork it) and patted it out...they rose beautifully, were tender and moist, and I couldn't wait, I had to eat one right out of the oven. Make that three., Thankyou so much for posting this on zaar!

I used whole wheat, and they turned out wonderfully! A bit on the salty side, but still delicious!

Oh my god these are absolutely fantastic! I love making biscuits, but they just never taste like ones I get from a restaurant. These totally do!!! I used butter instead of shortening, and it melted out while baking and made the most AMAZING crust on the bottom. Love, love, LOVE, this recipe!

Sorry ladies I am sure the biscuits are good. KFC does not make biscuits with salt there are only 4 ingredients, Flour, Yeast, Lard, Buttermilk.. Enjoy though!

YES, BUT, you need to cut down on the salt. I'd go with 3/4 tsp instead. Way too salty...but did rise perfectly and better with butter instead of shortening. Nice and flaky. Also did use buttermilk instead of milk. (I actually used no fat powdered milk mixed w/water and added 1 tblsp of vinegar)
Enjoy!
