Lovely biscuits. I made them just as the recipe directed and they turned out wonderfully.


WOW! These are great. I used what was on hand: salted butter, kosher salt, 2% milk, and unbleached bread flour. Other ingredients were as listed in the recipe; the baking powder was very fresh. Instead of kneading, I added the milk all at once and stirred about 8 strokes, removed dough from the bowl, and then GENTLY patted it into a 7 - 8 inch diameter shape. The recipe made 9 large and fantastic biscuits! My mom grew up on a Texas farm/ranch during the Depression, had biscuits for breakfast every morning of her childhood, and adores the things, even ones I consider to be inferior. I'm surprising her with fresh biscuits from this recipe tonight at supper. These are the best biscuits I've ever eaten. No exaggeration! Don't overwork the dough or let them get very brown in the oven. I ate one after 12 minutes and another after 15 minutes. They were SLIGHTLY brown around the bottom edge of the biscuits and melted in the mouth with butter and a little jam. GREAT recipe!
