"My grandmother used to make this recipe every Saturday with home baked beans. She would use tenderfake lard. I have changed the lard to butter or Margarine, hence the name buttery biscuit."
Serving Size: 1 (114 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Great recipe. I use it for biscuits and gravy. I "knead" mine via my stand mixer. Then I pat it into a 9 X 9 pan or 11 X 7, depending on how thick you want the biscuits. This is quick, easy and eliminates the need for rolling, cutting, etc. Bake and then cut in 9 - 12 squares. Serve hot, split open and pour sausage gravy over the biscuits. For the gravy: If you don't want to take the time to make gravy from scratch, you can buy a package mix at the grocery store called "Williams". It comes as a plain gravy or with meat added. This is a recipe the men like!"
"I make biscuits often and did not like these as they were terribly crumbly. Even Bisquick makes better ones."
"Ok so I made them and it was soo much easier than I was expecting, they even taste good (this was my first bread-ish venture) they are a lot like the biscuits from cracker barrel, but a little less buttery. My only qualm is that I can't figure out how to get 15 biscuits that are 1 1/2 inch thick, mine are all much smaller as a result and I still only got 12 out of the batch. Good recipe though."
"What caught my eye was that beautiful picture of biscuits.... but I have to say this wasn't my favorite biscuit recipe.
I didn't have enough butter so I used shortening. For me it was just too much baking powder, 4 Tablespoons and the flavor was too salty for me plus it crumbled a bit.
I did get my pretty biscuits though, although I would've rather had a yummy tasting biscuit.
Next time I would decrease the baking powder, salt and shortening to keep from crumbling."
"Very good biscuits. I have tried many different recipes and these biscuits are definitely more tender than others I have attempted. I mixed my dough by pulsing in the food processor. My only negative comment is that I thought they were too salty. I used margarine because it was what I had on hand but will use unsalted butter next time."
"ABSOLUTLEY SUPERB!!! I have made 100 different biscuits in my life and this one was amazing! I used this recipe on top of a chicken pot pie dish and my family loved it (esp the biscuits) Thank you for this recipe!"
"Delicious, flaky, buttery....YUM! Best part was putting a left over biscuit in the toaster oven topped with butter and jelly! Will make again!"
"I have made a few other biscuit recipes from this site. This is the best. It is quick and easy and pretty much idiot proof!"
"I had a craving to make breakfast for dinner tonight and didn't have any biscuts on hand. I found this recipe and decided to give them a try. They turned out fabulous. Very easy and taste great. I had never even made homemade biscuits before! I will definitely make them again!"
"I followed the recipe exactly and these biscuits are by far the best i have ever come across. Do yourself a favor and try these, they are outstanding!"
"I know it's late but I had to write. These biscuits are phenomenal. Per reviews, I reduced baking powder by 1 TBS, combined in food processor (added approx. 3/4 cup flour), and baked in 7X11 Pyrex. I did heat oven to warm and let dough rise in oven for 10-15 min. while I made venison SOS. They melted in our mouths--light, fluffy, flavorful. Melted butter on top does make a beautiful crust"
