Really good - fluffy and light, very delicious. I used 1/4 cup vegetable oil instead of 1/3 cup and greased the pan the second time I made them, which (I thought) really improved the flavor and ...

These biscuits were really light and fluffy. They needed a little more taste, next time I will add a little more salt and a little butter in the dough. I used a little extra baking soda to mak...

I used a sweet starter and they turned out more like scones. I would never make this recipe as biscuts but I will use it to make scones again and again.

I had high hopes for this recipe, but I don't think these can accurately be called "biscuits" - they really are almost like a sourdough cookie. They didn't rise and were dense.

I felt it needed sugar when I made it with my traditional starter and not a sweet starter

Easy to make. The kids love it. I add about 1tbs of sugar to sweeten it. I start out with a basic starter. I am lucky if I get one.

Wow! These were interesting! They tasted delicious and smelled just as great. Just don't plan on getting eighteen out of this recipe.

Good starting point. I went a little wild adding flavoring to the mix. Two teaspoons of peppermint oil or vanillia made for great treats!
