These turned out great! I used 2 cups of the mix and made 6 biscuits. I'm not a great biscuit maker but these were super easy, especially after chilling the dough for about 30 minutes. Made for Please Review My Recipe cooking tag game.
I used this recipe and added about 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, dropped them, baked them and brushed the tops with garlic butter and they were just like the red lobster biscuits.
This recipe was made exactly as written with one deviation- we replaced the shortening with organic butter. I was asked by a friend to show her how to make 'dummy proof biscuits'. I decided to show her by using a homemade mix instead of a commercial mix that is full of additives and makes lumpy biscuits. She made the buttermilk version of this recipe. These turned out great. She made them all by herself with my supervision. This is the first time she has made biscuits with any success. The biscuits were light, fluffy and very flavorful. Great recipe!
I use this same basic recipe but add 2/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese. and then mix 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 2 tbsp butter, melted - put on top before cooking - to make garlic cheese biscuits.
These biscuits turned out great and I like the mix since it doesn't use milk powder, which is not my cupboard standby.
This was easy to make and a great accompaniment for your delicious Cheesy Burger Pie. I made it as is, but instead of using cutters, I formed it into a ball and flattened it with the palm of my hand :D We don't have ready made biscuit mixes here so having finally make it was a great accomplishment for me. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC baby Fall 2008.
