Easy, very tender, and stored well. What a great use for leftover mashed potatoes!! Used butter instead of shortening. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Thank you so much for sharing Bunlady. I really enjoyed these delicious potato biscuits, what a lovely flavour and texture. They went perfectly with Laurel's Mark's Clam Chowder. I will definitely be making these again....Momma Kato

I found this recipe last week and made them up with left over mashed potatoes from thankgiving. These were VERY GOOD! I like the flavor of potatoe rolls or bread a lot but I don't always have the time to let them rise twice and bake them. These are a quick and easy alternative that have a good flavor. I increased the milk just enough so I could drop them instead of rolling them out. Because of limited time. They went beautifully with the creamy cauliflower soup I made. And the leftover biscuits were just good cold as they are warm from the oven. As much searching as I do on the internet for recipes, I don't think I have ever come across any biscuit recipe like this. This one is a definite keeper.

Just made an improvised half-batch for my gf's breakfast and lunch side. No fat except canola oil so that was what I went with. Also, due to no leftover mashers, I went ahead and set my oven to 450f and baked a potato, also preheating it for the biscuits is how it worked. When i pulled the potato from the oven, I almost instantly mashed it, measured half a cup, and stuck it in the freezer to cool as much as possible(I was short on time and making a split-pea soup for the gf's lunch too). With the extra mashed potatoes I rushed a twice-baked potato stuffed with romano cheese, salt, and pepper to bake along side the biscuits. Anywho, not to get off-track, the biscuits are amazing and leaving me wishing I had just hustled a little more to make the full batch. Next time hah! Thank you for sharing this five-star knock out recipe. I can't wait to use actual leftover mashed potatoes spiced and flavored however to deliver virtually countless variations!
