'Scoring the dough instead of cutting out individual pieces keeps these biscuits nice and moist,' explains Rosemarie Kondrk of Old Bridge, New Jersey. 'They have old-fashioned flavor that's very satisfying.'

These biscuits were really delicious! I was looking for a recipe for something bready that I could make quickly since I had only 30 minutes before dinner had to be ready, and this recipe was it. I happened to have all the necessary ingredients and voi la! I live in Japan and some ingredients required to make biscuits, like buttermild or Buisquick are impossible to find here, but no problem finding things to make these biscuits. I will make them again and again. Thank you for this great recipe!! Read More

This was an excellent recipe! I love the use of yogurt in this, it made a very soft but workable dough. The taste was really good, too, reminded me a scone. Read More

Synopses: Fluffy, pull-apart, yummy flavor! I love that these biscuits are healthier than most because of the small amount of butter, and the fat-free yogurt. With the following modifications, they will now be my staple biscuit recipe! The Changes: To make them even healthier (and yummier too) for %50 of the flour I use whole wheat pastry flour, butter in place of the margarine, and local honey in place of the sugar. Also, once I incorporate the yogurt, I add 1-4 Tbs of milk about 1 TB at a time until the texture is right. The first time I made them I scored the dough as directed, and they were good. The second time I cut them out like regular biscuits, and I liked them much, much more. p.s. No need to coat the baking sheet with cooking spray. Read More

These were really good! A wonderful recipe that kicks out that nasty shortening! I would probably add just a pinch more sugar... I like my biscuits a little sweeter... Read More

These biscuits have good flavor but I am giving them 4 starts because I didn't find them to be very biscuity, meaning not really flaky, more muffin-like in texture. They were very quick and healthy and a good alternative to using a baking mix that contains so many unknown ingredients! Read More

These are so quick and easy. They are also very forgiving as most of the time I forget to add an ingredient. I have made them with out milk, then another time with out baking soda. Both times, very good. I make mine into 6 little "patties" instead of cutting them. Sometimes I need to add a little bit extra yogurt. I think a 6oz container is the perfect amount. I like this recipe so much because it is very easy to make, it only takes about 10 minutes to mix up, and I normally have most of the ingredients on hand. I make these when I don’t have biscuits in a can for Saturday morning breakfast. Read More

I made these to go with the Super Sausage Gravy that I made for a quick lunch for my boys. I made them just as the recipe specified. My kids scarfed them, but they were covered with gravy. The bite I tried I didn't care for. I won't make these again. Read More
