"These were exactly what I was looking for when I wanted a side to my chili last night. They were perfect. I cut mine a bit thinner to stretch the servings, and next time I'll do 1/2 inch as the recipe suggests. I added 1/4 tsp garlic powder because I love garlic. I think these would also be excellent with a touch of shredded cheddar baked in too. I highly recommend these."

"I've been making these biscuits for a couple of years now and wouldn't think of going back to canned! They are delicious and turn out light and fluffy every time. Last night I made them with the butter flavored shortening and let them sit a few minutes before baking and they rose even higher. My husband has only one "word" for these, mmmmmmmmm."

"The amount of sodium listed is correct, but it’s for 2 biscuits. One biscuit would have 561 mg of sodium.

"I made these "as is" the first time and we found them a bit too dry for our taste. The second time, I omitted the cream of tartar and used unsalted butter instead of shortening and what a difference! They came out light and fluffy with a wonderful butter flavor. Made with the substitutions, they are perfect EVERY time!"
