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

"Easy to make. I followed directions but had a bitter after taste from all the baking powder. Probably would not use again unless i cut back on baking powder."

"These were really bad. I had to toss out the whole thing. All I could taste was bitter bitter baking soda. Is it really meant to have 4 tsp? This can't be right?!?

Omg- as I wrote this I realized my mistake. Baking powder!!!! I'll try again tomorrow."

"I have been making this recipe for years. I originally got it from Allrecipes.com. This is the only biscuit recipe I will use. I couldn't make biscuits worth beans before I found this recipe."

"These were perfect! The only thing I changed, was I sifted the dry ingredients, and baked them on my baking stone on the lowest rack. PERFECT! Thank you!"

"I thought the recipe was generally okay. However, I stuck the biscuits back in the oven a couple of times and they were still mushy on the inside. I thought the flavor was pretty bland, even for a biscuit. Regardless, they were all eaten. They just weren't as good as some recipes I have tried."
