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.
Very good biscuits,like Mom made
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.
This is a great biscuit recipe for variety i took half the batch rolled it out and put butter cinnamon brown sugar and nutmeg rolled it sliced it and baked made great cinamon biscuits.
My biscuits didn't rise at all - but the taste was still good that's why I am giving them 4 stars.
