Turned out very well light and fluffy. I used butter instead of shortening. Plus I added maybe a teaspoon of sugar. I will be making them again. Read More

Super easy recipe! If you’re intimidated by biscuits, (Exactly like me) then this is a great starter. I’ll be lucky if these aren’t gone by end of night. Read More

i made this during the COVID crisis (for historical reference some day), when there was no yeast available. I substituted butter as well since I had no shortening and my wife said these were the BEST tea biscuits she ever had. They were light and fluffy and not too salty. I'll definitely make them again.

Very tasty and light. I baked them in a glass dish and they did not get crisp on the bottom. Next time I'll try an aluminum pan. Read More

I wanted a sweet biscuit to use with raspberries & whipped cream, so I made these with 2 tsp of Splenda. I had just baked a pizza at 475 degrees and the oven was still warm, though turned off. Well, I apparently forgot to hit start when I set the temperature at 425 for the biscuits cause when the timer went off and I checked them, they were barely risen and the oven was off! (dumb, dumb, dumb). I turned the oven off and left the biscuits in for about 6 more minutes, and when they were barely golden, I took them out. Delicious! So, I'm sure if a more attentive person made these, at the correct temperature, they would be not only delicious but also fluffy. Read More
