If you're looking for a flaky basic biscuit, this recipe is the best. These golden-brown rolls bake up tall, light and tender. Their mild flavor tastes even better when the warm biscuits are spread with butter or jam. —Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2014

These biscuits turned out very light and fluffy but had very little flavor. I'm still searching for the perfect tea biscuit!

MY REVIEW

I used butter and 2 1/2 c. Flour, plus more for kneading but they came out great! My new favorite.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2014

My only complaint is that each time I have made these I only get 8 biscuits instead of 12. I make sure the dough is rolled out to 3/4 inch thickness and I have a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. They are so good, just wish there were a few more!
