    These biscuits are the best I have ever made. Not kneading the dough keeps them light and fluffy. They are not too "wet"! I will try adding vanilla next time but they are perfect the way they are. Yum!

    Will never buy biscuits for shortbread again! Was easy and just what I wanted for my strawberry shortcake. Didn’t make any adjustments, loved it just the way it is.

    Delicious, but with a some changes: * Add 1 t. Vanilla to biscuit batter * Increase sugar in biscuit to 3 T. * instead of milk, use half

    Excellent biscuits for strawberry shortcake. Easy to make and complement the strawberries perfectly.

    I just whipped this up after dinner.... I was short on milk so I added a little hazelnut creamer. Tastes great! My 3 boys and hubby approved!

    I made this exactly as written. You will think it is not enough butter, but it will be just right after you add the milk. They are barely sweet and light, while still being a shortcake consistency. A keeper.

    Biscuits are fluffy and I use the same recipe for biscuits and gravy. Just omit amount of sugar to a tbsp. Awesome!I cut the biscuits after patting out into squares.The ingredients are precise and after a three lightKneading in a half cup of flour will take care of the amount of milk that I add a Cargill of white vinegar for a little sour milk.

    The 3rd tablespoon of sugar gets mixed into the strawberries with the orange juice...see step 3 in the directions. Very quick and easy to mix up. Light and fluffy. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top.
