What's not to love about an easy biscuit recipe? These worked out great and rose up high and light. I consumed a month's worth of butter eating these darned biscuits hot but, what the heck? That's what a homemade biscuit is all about, right?

Perfect EaeEast, just perfect. I made 1/2 the recipe and got 5 large biscuits. They were crisp and tender. The butter just sent them over the top. Made just the way I like them, thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

These were very good! I ended up with 13 biscuits instead of 15, but it's not a big deal. Next time (there will definitely be a next time!) I'll try making these with cold butter instead of shortening.

I made these for lunch today and got perfect biscuits from this recipe. I always pat my biscuit dough to about 3/4" and that always assures me of getting nice high ones. These rose beautifully for me. *Note: I don't cut and re-roll mine but just cut it once into square's as the more biscuit dough is worked the less it will rise.

My biscuits didn't rise at all - but the taste was still good that's why I am giving them 4 stars.
