I used the same ingredients and amounts, but used a muffin pan to bake them in. It made about 10 biscuits, filling each cup half full because they do puff up quite a bit. I increased baking time to 16 minutes so that the top would brown. They were amazing, and almost identical to Popeye's biscuits, though to truly achieve that New Orleans flair, you need to brush melted butter on the top before baking. Thank you for sharing this one!

Very good, old-fashioned, southern style biscuits, but minus two stars for the fact that they taste NOTHING like Popeye's biscuits.

Very very good biscuit, however not quite Popeyes. I was suprised at the light texture. I will make these a lot! Thanks!

I had to knead it with a little extra flour and TLC, but they turned out just like popeyes or better. I am hosting a country chicken night for single airmen in the dorms next Sunday, and this is the winning biscuit recipe. Thank you and God bless you.

I received this recipe a few years back from a good friend of my mother's. I use Pioneer Mix and I don't roll them out. Simply put a bit of flour on my hands and pat to the size I want. Then bake in black iron skillets. With my family I triple the recipe.

Made the recipe exactly as stated. I made them different diameters and thicknesses to see which configuration I liked best. It tasted like a scratch biscuit you made at hime, but nothing like Popeye's.

The secret is in the melted butter on top. Don't cheat yourself. That's the Popeye's signature. These were good, but only the top reminded me of Popeye's. Well worth making for dinner, though.

I served them to my family without saying anything about what they were supposed to taste like and the first thing my husband said was "these taste like Popeyes biscuits." I pretended like it was purely accidental lol.

I made a vegan version of this recipe and it was delicious. I used soy sour cream and made a bisquick mix, from the recipe on this site. My husband, who used to work at Popeyes, said that it came very close.
