    OMG these biscuits are amazing. Crisp, tender, light, flaky and of so flavorful. I am in biscuit heaven, these are perfect, just the way I enjoy my biscuits. I didn't change a thing. This recipe is quick and easy to make with great results. The biscuits were incredible served with pulled pork and equally as delicious with butter and jam. Thank you for sharing my new go too, biscuit recipe. Kudos on making it into my Favorites of 2011. Made for Fall Pac - 2011.

    Made these adding thyme and white cheese to go with Recipe #384829. Turned out great and were very easy, and flaky.

    Made these for breakfast today and they are so easy and light and flaky. IMHO it's important to NOT over mix to keep them light and the butter must be cold. Your Grandma really knew her biscuits. Loved that there was no waiting for a rise which meant it was fast and easy when making a last minute decision to make them for breakfast. I followed the directions exactly with no changes.

    These biscuits are excellent!!! I did add a little bit more sugar and a tsp of salt but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Very easy recipe with wonderful results. Thank you for posting!

    I've made these twice now and the first time the flavor seemed bland, so made them again adding a teaspoon of salt and it made a world of difference! These biscuits are by far the best ones I've run across... they bake up so light and fluffy and melt in your mouth. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe :)
