      Very good! I needed a recipe to use some old packets of yeast. I chose this recipe because I had a can of evap milk that needed to be used also. I did not have any wheat flour on hand so I used all white. Other than that I didn't change a thing. We think these are great. Thanks so much!

      My husband's review when he picked up one of these biscuits - "Mighty fine biscuit you've got here!" This was a great opportunity for using my new Kitchenaid mixer, because the dough is pretty heavy. It takes a while to rise, even with rapid-rise yeast. Tastes great - thanks for posting!
