I just made these today.........AND, I used my bread machine. They came out perfect.......golden, fluffy and delicious. I used half the amount of salt called for and didn't have shortening so I used unsalted butter slightly softened...... I set the machine on the dough setting and took out at the 50 minute mark right before the second rise........rolled the dough, cut them out, let rise for 30 minutes, brushed the tops with melted butter, baked for the 12 minutes and brushed the tops with melted butter again when they came out of the oven ........DELISH!!!!!!!!!!! Had to have one immediately with unsalted butter and marmalade!!! Yummy :)

These are the best yeast biscuits! Fairly easy to make. Messy, but they all are. They warm up great in the oven. They are not real bready and even warm up soft and delicious. I cut the sugar back to 1 tbsp and they are perfect with any fillings.

Delicious, and very easy. Set the yeast to rising, and by the time I had the shortening cut in, the yeast was ready. It is a very shaggy dough, but with the addition of about 1/3 cup flour while kneading, it became perfectly soft and pliable. The biscuits were soft and tender. My new favorite recipe for biscuits!

These biscuits do not rise at all for me! I am an accomplished baker so I know how to bake. I must be missing SOMETHING!!!

Wonderful! These were easy to make and tasted great. I used butter and the milk/vinegar option. I got 16 large fluffy biscuits that baked up perfectly. Thanks for sharing.

These are, without a doubt, the absolute best biscuits I have ever had! I don't use shortening (hydrogenated fat is evil), so I used butter. I didn't have any buttermilk so I used kefir. After cutting out the biscuits, I cut the remaining dough scraps into 1/4" pieces and tossed them into a pot of chicken soup. They made excellent dumplings.
