They're pretty good and very easy to make, but these are absolutely NOT Popeye's biscuits- not even close.
These were the easiest and fastest biscuits to make. They turned out light, fluffy and moist. I like mine a little crispier and crumbly... like a breakfast biscuit from McDonalds. But, these were great with lentil stew and are definately to us more like a 'dinner' biscuit than a breakfast one. Also, I don't know how they could've been patted out and cut because mine dough was too runny and I would've had to add anywhere from 1/4 to 1/3 cup of flour. So, rather than go to all that trouble and get a messy counter to boot, I just dropped them by the big spoonful (small serving spoon) onto the greased jelly roll pan. They worked just fine. I think next time, I will use a smaller spoon and a cast iron skillet in the oven to see if that lends a more crispy outer texture. The bigger spoonful was just too big..these are so filling that everyone ended up not even finishing one, including my husband who loves biscuits. Anyway, this is definately a keeper..and it would work great for last minute company!
these biscuits were pretty dang good! I served them with chicken stew, my kids and I ate them all up. Thanks for the super simple and tasty recipe Ive already filed it in as a household regular.
This recipe is EXCELLENT! I have tried homemade biscuits before and they are always hard, flat and weaponlike. These were incredible. I used regular sour cream because I did not have light on hand and I mixed mine with a fork because I do not have a pastry blender. I think I rolled mine out a little thin because I got 7 biscuits, but they were still incredible. Thanks so much for this recipe! It felt so great to make biscuits that could not double as weapons in case of an attack :).
These biscuits are the bomb!!I have made many a bicuit and these are by far the best!!I didn't quite put a half cup of sourcream or sprite, and the dough was perfect! I rolled them with my hands(the old fashioned way) after I dusted my hands with a little flour. The next time the only thing I will do different is make them a little smaller, because I got six biscuits and they rose so much they took up the whole pan. I could have easily gotton 8 or 9 . Thanks very much!! Terri
I tried this recipe using an off brand baking mix and using milk in place of the sprite 'cuz I had no sprite. I didnt pat and cut instead I put about a tablespoon of baking mix in my hands and pulled enough to form a rough biscuit shape( each time flipping to coat in pan with oil. I had to bake them a little longer than stated because I made the biscuits pretty big.( I doubled the recipe). They looked wonderful and fluffy and moist. I asked hubby for a review and he says A-1!
These biscuits taste dee-lish--no qualms there; however, they're not very cooperative with the "patting out" part. Had to keep adding more biscuit mix just to get the dough thick enough to get out of the bowl! These are much better suited to spoon-dropping than rolling out. Sure are yummy with butter 'n honey though! ;-)
