These biscuits were easy to make and very tasty. Everyone in my family enjoyed them. I didn't have any "butter flavored" crisco so I used regular and they were fine. Next time I'm out shopping I'll pick some up and try them with the butter flavor. Thanks Mary. :)

I like these heavy biscuits! I like to freeze the dough after it was cut into form and then take out to bake as many as I need for that time. My mom gave me this recipe when I got married. They're a favorite!

These biscuits were very good. I made them this a.m. and only half of the recipe. I had some homemade fig preserves and they go great with hot biscuits & butter. I rolled the biscuits in my hand as I am in East Texas where biscuits are a part of our vocabulary, lol!! Biscuits & Gravy, biscuits with fried chicken & on & on. These were good & I will definitely make them again. Thanks for this recipe. I wanted something different & had never made with cream of tartar & sugar but added a great taste.

We enjoyed these but I wouldn't classify them as light and fluffy. I think I must not have kneaded the dough properly because they weren't smooth on the top. They looked like sort of crumbly. But, tasted good.

Biscuits are not a big thing in Alberta, Canada as restaurants serve dinner buns. I've never made biscuits before and I am pleased with the results. They are high, light and fluffy and I brushed the tops with butter when they came out of the oven. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Katherine

These were very light and fluffy with a hint of sweetness. This was the first time I used cream of tartar or sugar to make biscuits. My husband who doesn't like biscuits ate two and these and said these are great! So, I had to give this recipe 5 stars.
