    Why do these biscuits look moldy? Not just this picture but also in one posted!

    Are you using all purpose flour OR self rising?

    This recipe is so darn easy! They turned out perfectly! I just dropped them on a cookie sheet instead of rolling and cutting them out too. Even easier!

    I had to make an account just so I could say how AMAZING these biscuits were. I made some tuna helper tonight & at the last minute decided I wanted something to go with it. I did a quick search for 'easy biscuits' & your recipe was the first one that came up. I don't have shortening or yeast or anything else you usually need to make something like this so I was surprised that I had everything I needed for this one! I decided to try it & I'm so glad I did - they were SO GOOD. Flaky & tasty. Mmm Mmm Mmm! I made large biscuits [only made 6 instead of 12] & dropped them on the cookie sheet rather than rolling & cutting. Still amazing, & I'll be using this recipe again for sure. Thanks!

    I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe that was easy for years....not anymore. This recipe is fantastic just the way it is written. I would suggest doubling the recipe if you like rather large biscuits. I did and it yielded 13. My biscuits and gravy were great! If you try this recipe, you won't be sorry.

    These were really great, especially considering how easy they were. They were surprisingly flaky for a biscuit that has no shortening and was just dropped on the cookie sheet instead of rolled out! Brushed a little butter on top to give it a little extra flavor and they were wonderful! Definately going to be my "go to" recipe for biscuits now! Thanks!
