    Boyz 5's Note:

    Found this recipe in Jean Pare's "Company's Coming" cookbook. I've made baking powder biscuits before, but not with cream of tarter in the recipe.

      Really quick, easy and tasty biscuit. It was my first time to ever use cream of tartar or sugar in a biscuit, but was quite a pleasing surprise. Thanks for the great recipe. I will use this recipe again.

      Great recipe...just what I was looking for! The biscuits are light and fluffy on the inside with a slightly crispy exterior. My tips for success - handle the dough as little as possible. Do not knead the dough, instead fold it on to itself 5 or 6 times (this creates layers that you can clearly see in my photo). Never use a rolling pin...gently flatten dough with your finger tips. Lastly, when using your biscuit cutter, do not twist it back and forth. Simply push down and then pull up. This will allow your biscuits to raise higher.
