So I'm sure I beefed up the recipe a bit - I used butter instead of shortening, ended up needing more flour (~1 1/2 c or so). I have never been able to make a good biscuit until now, despite all my errors. These were fantastic, and foolproof (even for this fool!) Thanks!
Fantastic! My first successful batch of biscuits. Thanks for sharing.
These are hands down the best biscuits I've ever had. (and I've had plenty homemade biscuits). Not too dense, crisp on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. Tasty enough to eat with butter and nothing else!
These are great Biscuits. Usually my biscuits will turn out hard and flat, but these truly live up to their name. I made them with sausage gravy on top. yum!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Had never made biscuits before, DW always did, but she was at a hockey game watching my niece play. I made "my" beef stew and discovered this recipe for biscuits... DW no longer makes biscuits ;)... 'nuf said! Straighforward, and yummy results with this recipe. Only difference was that instead of cutting with floured cutter I rolled it out and cut in squares with a knife (quick, less hassle). Thanks Mysterygirl, you saved the day!
Easy to make and very effective, kids loved both making it and eating it. Plus tonnes of possibilities for modifying the recipe - I used mixture of wholemeal and white flower, cut sugar and added emmental, next time will try adding some oregano. I am also thinking of doing a rye-based version with cummin. Thank you for posting the recipe!
These are the best homemade biscuits I've ever made. The remind me of KFC's biscuits. I love eating them with honey!
I know this really doesn't need another review but I just need to tell everyone that these are the BEST biscuits!! The only changes I made were to use 1 Tblsp. of sugar, patted out in rectangle, cut with knife and used parchment paper. The recipe was right on. Mine were done in exactly 12 minutes and were a picture perfect golden brown and had a nice rise to them. I served them with Fabulous Beef Stew posted by ratherbeswimmin'. By the way, if you haven't tried the stew yet, please do. I made it exactly as written and it was fabulous (just like the title says). Thanks for posting this Mysterygirl. I'll be using this from now on.
