I've been using this same recipe since 1959 without adding any other ingredients for flavoring.
They have always been great as is. Being on a low-fat, low-sodium diet we're not able to eat
highly seasoned foods.
If you don't have self-rising flour in your pantry - add 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt
to 1 cup of all-purpose flour - it will save you buying it.

I used low fat mayo and skim milk. Not quite as tender but still a tasty biscuit.

Great biscuits! So easy! I use low fat mayo to reduce the lipids even more.

I needed a fast and easy biscuit and decided to try this decidely unconvention recipe. My DH raved and raved, which he never does for almost any bread or biscuit. I served them with curried broccoli soup, so I added minced bits of candied ginger to the mix. When the baking time was up, I was a little disappointed that the biscuits hadn't risen more than a tiny bit and worried that the would be dense and hard. Wrong! The texture was fantastic, moist and tender. I love the idea of adding different flavors to these great biscuits. They are sooooo easy, it's almost a crime NOT to make them!

These were so good. Made them for black bean soup and they were so easy to put together.
I used evaporated skim milk as that was what I had and Mayo Light and they were light and tasted delicious. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando

I didn't have mayo so I used lowfat ranch dressing and it came out just as good. I want to try the chipotle mayo idea; it sounds great!

Made these using the new chipotle mayonnaise, and added about 1/2 t of chipotle powder to the flour. It made for a nicely-spiced biscuit with a bit of a zing to it. Very good, easy biscuit!

Couldn't have been easier and came out pretty good. I used lite mayo and 2% milk and baked on cookie sheet. Would have preferred more fluffiness, and they were a little bland to me, so next time I'll try using the muffin tins like the recipe calls for and see if the restricted size makes them come out fluffier or whether I'd need to use full fat mayo and milk. Also may try chipotle mayo.
