My mom, and grandmother before her, have been using this method to make buttermilk biscuits for years. They've never added baking soda, but the biscuits always rise beautifully with just the self-rising flour, oil and buttermilk. It's nice to see the measurements instead of always hearing... "just eyeball it". :-)

I am not a biscuit person at all, that said, I really liked how these turned out! Just about every biscuit i've ever made has been a dry, tasteless, hockey puck. But these were moist and fluffy. I followed the directions using powdered buttermilk but I forgot the extra baking soda and they turned out fine. The dough was so wet i was worried when i turned it out on my board, but i used lots of flour and barely worked it before cutting them out. i forgot to melt the butter before pulling them out of the oven and i was in a rush, so i just used some butter spray for the tops. It worked fine but I'll bet melted butter would be even better. These are by far the best biscuits i've made, and i'll definitely be making them often. I just can't believe i'd ever say that about biscuits!

Exactly right...perfect with my beef stew. Entire family asked when I will make these again...didn't ask when I would make the stew again however Ü

I just made these as a midnight breakfast for my son and his friend. They want more-what else needs to be said!

I just made these biscuits for breakfast for my husband and he loved them! So simple and easy! I will definitely be using this technique again. We put butter and honey on them and they were delicious!

These were good and fun to make with my 2 1/2 year old, but mine were over-cooked at 12 minutes on 425 in the convection. I had to make my own self-rising flour using a recipe on Zaar, so I'm not sure if that was why? No matter, they're still good! We cut them into heart shapes - very cute. Thanks for the fun recipe and great afternoon with my toddler :)

The best instructions I've ever read for biscuits, THANKS!! I followed the directions and I've never been so excited over a bicuit before. No more mini frizbees, disks or flour puffs for me, I've got this, now!! It's all in the wet dough.

Red Apple Guy these biscuits (or the tips) rock. I had saved this recipe some time ago to try but didn't get around to it until yesterday. The were so quick, easy and tasted great. Soft and fluffy on the inside and a great accompany to our breakfast. I was so pleased and thanks to you DH can't stop complimenting me on my new biscuit skills. I followed the directions exactly, was a little nervous at the "wet" dough, but they turned out great.
