Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
These were great! I made a couple of changes-the first being that I used only whole wheat flour. I halved the salt and I added a little extra milk because the dough felt dry. Not very, just a tiny bit. I should add that I am NOT an experienced cook/baker.
I usually don't leave reviews on recipes but the amount of negative reviews this one have seem unwarranted. I made a batch just now that turned out exactly as expected. They don't have a ton of flavor, but if you look at the ingredients they're not supposed to. If you're expecting a savory biscuit with its own distinct flavor, look elsewhere. But if you want something no-fuss for, say, biscuits and gravy as I made this morning, this works perfectly. As far as "not rising" or being "hard as a hockey puck", remember this isn't a cookie dough. Knead to the point where things just hold together, and not further. I used a stand mixer with a paddle attachment on low for maybe 20 seconds after adding the milk, and that's it. Use cold butter and there's no need for a rolling pin. You can flatten the dough out with your palms to roughly an inch high, and cut from that. Using a pint glass as my cutter I ended up with about 6 and a half biscuits. Also, make sure you aren't using expired baking powder that's been sitting in your cupboard for a decade. Finally, regarding "using a tablespoon of baking powder instead of 3 teaspoons" then blaming the recipe...there are no words, lol.
Made these this morning - I’m not sure what these other reviewers did but mine rose beautifully and tasted great. Will definitely make again.
Made these exactly as recipe was written. Biscuits are tender and tasty. Do not overwork the dough and do not use a food processor. The dough was very nice after mixed and was very easy to work with. One reviewer said it needed a tablespoon of baking powder...3 teaspoons equals 1 tablespoon. Give this recipe a try. The biscuits were very good!
This was awful. I thought I could finally make a homemade biscuit since the dough seemed right. But no! They dont rise. They're hockey pucks! This gets one star bc I cant rate 0, which is ok since they would've tasted good.
I made these using my food processor, which over-processed the dough. Came out of the oven looking like brown, mini frisbees. Tasted fine, just not much to them. Will try again someday, with minimal handling of the dough.
Total disappointment. Ok, so this recipe is for crackers. The "biscuits" don't rise at all. I was so confused as to why this recipe was such a fail. I've made biscuits from scratch a few times before, so I was pretty sure the ingredients were correct but couldn't remember the amounts. Anyway, after using this unfortunate recipe, I looked up another recipe. Pretty much everything about this recipe is incorrect. There should be a TABLESPOON of baking powder, 3/4 cup of milk, knead the dough about a handful of times, and flatten to an inch thickness. This whole thing is so off and it's weird that this recipe was tested by the test kitchen and approved. There's no way.
These look more like crackers thank biscuits!!
Ya'll really like to make Hungarian recepies, huh?
Good recipe! I like the outside a bit better when brushed with some buttermilk and the layers when you fold the dough into thirds and roll back out 2 or 3 times.
