Reviews for Fluffy Biscuits
Sort By :
"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."
"I used half butter and half lard. Delicious!!"
"Very nice. ... what a great find!!!"
"This is the fluffy biscuit recipe I've been looking for!! I used real butter instead of shortening but these were the lightest fluffiest biscuits I've ever made and they tasted heavenly!!"
"This was so easy to make. They turned out light and fluffy and so delicious that the whole dozen was gone in no time! I experimented with my second batch and put dollops of slightly moister batter into a muffin tim. I baked them for a couple of minutes more than the cut biscuits. Once again they were scrumptious."
