"If your biscuit-challenged then try this I think you will be pleased with the results! for garlic-lovers add in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon garlic powder you can also add in dried herbs --- make sure that the buttermilk is very cold when adding in the melted butter this will form small clumps of semi hardened butter that is needed for the success of these biscuits I have suggested in the instructions to put the buttermilk in the freezer--- in place of buttermilk mix 1-1/2 tablespoons white vinegar with milk to equal 1 cup then allow to sit for 10 minutes mixing often --- these are best served still warm :)"

"These are great! Quick to make with delicious results and practically no clean up. I rarely go through the trouble to roll out biscuits since I can make these!"
"Very good biscuits. Lite, moist and flavor.
I added garlic powder and parsley."
"This is a great and easy recipe - I loved that I didn't have to cut the butter in - so smart! They baked up beautifully - moist and fluffy inside with a nice light crust. I made a couple additions just because we prefer a little more flavor, but this recipe will be my basic biscuit from now on, regardless what spices I am in the mood to add. I baked in a cast iron skillet (warmed slightly before dropping the biscuits in) - which gave the biscuits a nice crust on the bottom. Just for a little extra flavor, I added dried shallots to the melted butter and let them sit to reconstitute while the butter was cooling, before mixing into buttermilk. I also shook a little old bay, garlic powder and cayenne into dry/cheese mix before combining with the wet. Oh - and I added a large handful of shredded Parmesan cheese along with the (generous) 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar. Mmmm. Thanks so much Kittencal!"
"The first time I made these, I followed the recipe to the letter and they were perfect. Fluffy, yummy, simple. My husband loves them! I just made them again, but this time I threw in some finely chopped ham and a dash of dried parsley. I also didn't brush the tops with butter, I like them a little lighter. This recipe can handle anything you throw in it haha!"
"Paired these biscuits with Kittencal's Sausage Sawmill Gravy and my family can't do enough for me to show their appreciation! http://www.food.com/recipe/kittencals-sausage-sawmill-gravy-with-biscuits-258508 Subbed gluten-free flour mix and added 4 tsp. xanthan gum due to a wheat allergy. Omitted the cheese for personal preference. These are our new favorite biscuits. Thanks for sharing!"
"I just dropped a note on your website regarding these biscuits. VERY GOOD! These are easy to make and very delicious. I took your advice which you posted on your website regarding the garlic powder option. I took that option by adding 1 tsp of garlic powder to a doubled recipe (1/2 tsp for a regular recipe). Kitten you are the best!"
"These biscuits were easy to make and delicious. The recipe made 16 biscuits, and my family of four ate them all!"
"I am definitely biscuit challenged but with this recipe I made nice flavorful biscuits. Used parchment paper on my baking sheet and did make sure to chill the buttermilk and bring the butter to room temperature. Topped the biscuits with Kitten's Recipe #258508 so didnt brush them with the butter. Wont worry about rolling biscuits out anymore! Thank you sweets for posting this recipe!"
"Interesting method - worked out well!"
"Wow, I wish I could give these 10 stars! Quick & easy to put together they produce a light texture biscuit that's melt-in-your-mouth yummy. I made as instructed and added the garlic powder. They reminded me of the garlic cheesy biscuits you get at Red Lobster but WAY BETTER!!! I will be making these often and you should too! :) Thanks for the keeper!"
"This biscuit is better than any you could get at a restaurant. Absolutely delicious! DH and I had these with recipe #133649. A great combination! Another winner KITTEN!!!! Made in honor of John for Kittencal Cookathon."
"Never having made biscuits before, and being from a country where we call cookies biscuits, I discovered that I had made what we call, scones! :lol: So now I know! very easy, followed the instructions to a T, I also found I didnt need to stir too long before my butter clumped. I added the garlic powder, and found these to delicious little savoury snacks. Thank you for introducing me to a new concept, Kittencal!"
"These go together very quickly and the buttermilk gives them a very nice flavor. The texture was really pleasant as well, a little flaky on the outside and nice and soft on the inside. I used white cheddar cheese. After adding the butter to the chilled buttermilk, it almost immediately went to little pieces... the directions say to stir for 1 minute, so I kept stirring and all of the little chunks started to form one big chunk, so probably I wouldn't stir that extra minute if the butter forms pieces right away next time."
