Questions & Replies
Can we get step-by-step instructions please? I love cooking, but I'm teaching myself. My mom and dad are both great cooks, but they only showed me a few things in the kitchen growing up. People like me need to know what to set the temp on, if we need to make balls out of the dough or flatten it out and cut out circles, what size, and whatever else you may have done. My oven went out about 8 months ago and our landlord has yet to fix it, so if I want to cook something for my family it has to be stovetop only and today we want biscuits and gravy!

I only used 3/4 cup milk. Directions didn't say whether or not to knead the dough -- I didn't, just rolled dough out on a floured surface and cut the biscuits out. Fried them per directions. They came out great! Buttery and toasty on the outside, soft but firm inside. My man and our teenager loved them.
These were great. I fried them in butter so will reduce salt to 1/2 tsp next time. I used a cheese shredder to shred cold butter into the dry ingredients. It makes mixing so much easier. I lightly kneaded the dough 2-3 times and flattened it to 1/2 inch. I used a 2 1/2 inch round biscuit cutter and that gave me 12 total. I loved not having to heat my oven plus these are just as good if not better than any I've made in the oven. Thanks for the recipe!

I love to cook and aspire to do it well. <br /> <br />I've only been cooking for a few years now, but there are already quite a few people whom I have surpassed. Interestingly enough, I tell people it's not necessarily that I'm a good cook per se, just that I know how to pick the right recipes. This is why I stick around here. :) <br /> <br />I am a recent college graduate with a finance degree. I currently work as an Excel VBA programmer. When I graduated from college, I had no idea this is where my career path would lead; but I think it's kind of fitting and a bit funny since I originally planned to major in computer science. Now, I get to use them both!</p> 8755568"
