these were excellent. I used whole wheat pastry flour, buttermilk, and butter instead of shortening. I made 1/3 of the recipe and added raisins to some of the biscuits, which yielded 4 raisin and 2 regular biscuits. Instead of flattening them, I formed them into balls and so they baked into puffs. Thanks for the recipe, I'll definitely be making these again!

These were good! I cut out heart shapes for the kids for Valentine's Day. I also cut out some maple leafs, in honour of the Olympics, and spread raspberry jam over them while they were still a bit warm so it ran down the sides better. A great ode to Canada for the kids!

These were fast, simple and delicious! I'll definitely be making them when I need something to add to a meal in a hurry!

Loved these little biscuits - BF and I used them to make mini sausage biscuit sandwiches - even added fried egg. Was surprised by how tasty they are considering the low calories and simple ingredients. Thanks, Derf!

Great Biscuits. I made them with whole wheat flour, increased the baking soda to 7 tsp, and added a 1/4 cup of sugar. I also let them sit on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes once I had cut them out to let them rise a bit. The were very yummy!!!

These are just like the tea biscuits my mom used to make! I have been searching for the recipe for years - What a find! Easy to make, light with golden crust ~ I had to make another batch as the first one went halfway through dinner! Thanks for the great recipe!
