A tedious recipe that seems to over complicate things. The dough turns out like runny pancake batter, then tells you to roll it in a pan of flour. It was impossible to roll, it was simply sticky goo. I ended up adding the panned flour that I was supposed to roll the dough in, and just added it to the dough. It was still very sticky and took me three times the work of a regular biscuit recipe. Not to mention no bake time is included. One person stated it took hers roily 12-14 minutes. Mine took 22 minutes. I will not use this recipe again.

THANK YOU! I finally can make biscuits that are tall and fluffy instead of hockey pucks. Not having any self rising flour on hand, I used Self-Rising Flour for self rising flour and followed your instructions after that. Made chicken and biscuits and baked it for about 17 minutes and had some dough left so made a couple of biscuits on the side. Everything turned out perfect. So long Bisquick biscuits!
