Finally found "The Biscuit Recipe"!!! They look just like the picture - light, flakey, and so delicious. I used butter and as recommended, left sit out on the counter overnight covered by a towel. Made the mistake of rolling some of the dough too thin, from now on, will roll about 3/4 inch thick, because we like tall, flakey biscuits. I am going to try freezing some pre-cut dough so I can take out a few, let thaw and then cook as needed. Hopefully that should turn out really good too.

So good...sometimes I don't even do the first rise. I just fold them straight into biscuits and let them rise once before baking.

I made these exactly as instructed, using soured milk. Delicious light, layered biscuits! I placed them about an inch apart on a very well-greased cookie sheet. Very delicious with roast, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Made about 18 biscuits, looking forward to having leftovers for breakfasts this week! Thanks for posting! :~)

Just tried this recipe after my mom mentioned her mom's backinthedays yeast biscuits. These are amazing! ABSOLUTELY amazing!! The only difference, since i was in a rush... greediness... I set the oven to 200 and let them rise in there... and I dropped tsps of dough onto a flour pile and hand rolled lightly and added to the greased pan. This way i did not have to knead dough. YUMMY. The consistency is like, a biscuit with a great cake texture that holds together. Hard to explain but delicious!!! Just wish I had someone to share this with tonight to prove how good they are. I only wanted a pie pan full, so I halved the recipe. So good!!

Very easy to put together and so soft and delicious. Keep in mind that they taste more like rolls than biscuits. Keeper!!!

These are wonderful! They are so easy. I make them once a week for breakfast. I always make them the night before, letting them sit on the counter overnight. In the morning, it's very quick and easy to finish them up. They smell wonderful and my family absolutely loves them. If there are any leftovers, they are good split with butter, sugar, and cinnamon, then bake in the oven til warm and toasted.

These biscuits turned out wonderfully which is a first for me. Mine usually are flat and dry. Thanks to the person who submitted this recipe!!! They are easy to make also. I might add just a tad bit more salt next time to enhance the flavor even more.
