    skeptic777's Note:

    If you like biscuits, I am sure you will like this one. I can't tell you how many batches I baked to come up with this recipe. I wanted to make a light, fluffy biscuit that didn't choke you on the way down and I finally achieved my goal. They are great with gravy.

      Really wonderful biscuits. This was the first time that I added an egg to my biscuits (and I've made a lot of biscuits in my time) and it does add a more rich taste. I made 12 of these for Easter dinner and the 4 people at the table were 3 short of wiping out the entire dozen. I think that for my own taste I might not add the Splenda next time but my 3 guys thought they were perfect as written. Their opinions, ease of preparation and their lovely outcome are plenty to rate this with the full 5 stars.

      I've been experimenting with biscuit recipes for a while, and could never get them quite right, but THESE are outstanding! They rise nice and high, light and fluffy without being too dense. Perfect texture and taste. A must try!

      These were light as the name suggest. The fact that an egg was in the recipe had me intrigued so I decided to try it, but the egg gave it a taste and texture I did not care for. The way the dough felt and reacted to being kneaded and cut reminded me of a cookie dough. I will stick with my normal recipe for now.
