Judy waving a "high five" to Mysterygirl! Fantastic and outstanding recipe. I made these biscuits yesterday and didn't change a thing. My husband went crazy over these biscuits and he said they were just like his grandmother used to make. Wow, what a compliment, I've been trying to make a good biscuit for the past 15 years, finally, success!!! Thank you!

Oh Wow! I have my mouth full as I write! Yum! I followed the recipe exactly, mixed in my cuisinart, cooked on a dark pan for 15 minutes...beautiful golden brown and flaky. I too, will throw away my family biscuit recipe and will slip this into my recipe book. Good find Myterygirl!

Made these to go with a batch of Bev's Chili and Charishma's Dal, two other Zaar specialties ! Omitted the sugar and added cheddar cheese. Yuuummy. Not supposed to eat to many carbs during the week but I could not resist trying these out. I cheated on my meal plan and had 1, ok 3.........rest are for weekend dinners when I do indulge in all the breads and potatoes my heart desires !!!!

These were the lightest scones I have ever made and a beautiful colour. This will definitely be my main recipe from now on.

WOW!! I've made biscuits before, but they were never like this. I had to use butter (we don't have shortening), and they were still really wonderful and flaky. I liked the crispy outside and the really tender inside. Mine were done in 15 minutes, with the outside a little darker than golden but certainly not overdone. Thank you for a wonderful recipe, these are going to be the family standard from now on.

These were really great biscuits. Everyone loved how flakey and brown they came. Maybe next time, I'll try them with half butter and half shortening and let you know how they came. Thanks!!

I made these when my dad was in town. He said they were the best biscuits he had ever tasted! They are very tender and velvet-like in texture.
