    Mysterygirl's Note:

    I got this recipe in a church cookbook years ago and have been making them ever since. They are extremely tender with a flavor that no store bought biscuit could ever come up with. Makes breakfast or any meal special. (And they are so easy too)

      Mysterygirl, these are Fab-u-lous!! I just finished one off and you can be sure I will be making these again. Very easy to put together. I was worried about the high heat, and they were very brown but very flaky and moist. Delicious with strawberry jam. I totally agree with Yooper. You have a winning recipe here. Thanks for posting.

      I'm a southern gal who has always believed that a biscuit wasn't a biscuit unless it was made with buttermilk AND I was a little apprehensive about putting an egg in a biscuit recipe. I've been making "angel" biscuits for years, (the ones with yeast in the recipe)and seriously doubted that any recipe could beat that one. Boy was I wrong!! These biscuits are wonderful!!! I made them without adding the cream of tartar because I was out of it and they still came out absolutely perfect. Very tender, delicious and easy to make. Thanks Mystergirl.

      Wonderful recipe! After kneading the dough, I pat it into a rectangle 3/4" thick and use a knife to cut square biscuits. This is quicker than rolling it out & using a biscuit cutter and it produces a more tender result, because the less you handle the dough, the better. These biscuits brown quite a bit, but are so moist and delicious. Yum!
