Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

THESE BISCUITS are simple to make and have a wonderful aroma when baking! This particular recipe is one of my husband's favorites - and biscuits were a steady diet in the Southern household where he grew up. The muffin shape makes them a bit different. -Virginia Foster, Paducah, Kentucky

    (Can't seem to get the ONE star highlighted)Wish they had negative stars on this. This is the WORST recipe I have ever used and I've been cooking for sixty years! No flavor at all which is about what I expected looking at the ingredients but I thought it COULDN'T be that bad but it was! Surprised TOH would allow this on their site....

    I make these simple, tasty muffins using Bisquick instead of flour. No cutting, just stir all together.

    You won't find an easier recipe than this. The biscuits turn out light and fluffy. It may seem odd the put mayo in the dough but give it try. You don't taste it. I put mayo in my bread recipe in place of the oil sometimes and it turns out great tasting too.

    This recipe was so easy and very good. Being a southern girl, I used buttermilk instead of milk and added 1/4 teaspoon soda to the flour mixture. I also used a pastry blender to work in the mayonnaise and it only took a few seconds to have it blended. This will be a regular recipe for breakfast and dinner.

    Mine were light and fluffy, the texture was great. I think the flavor was lacking a bit. We had to eat them with lots of butter and honey. I will try them again but with some added ingredients. It did take longer than I expected to get the mayo properly cut in. Good base recipe I think.

    These were pretty good. You don't really taste the mayonnaise at all, which is good because I don't like mayo at all. They were fluffy and had a nice texture. I don't have self-rising flour so I just added 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt as directed and it was delicious. The edges also crisp up nicely with a nice light fluffy interior.

    Mine were very dense, not fluffy, and they didn't spread out in the muffin cups...flour was new...maybe I mixed too much after adding the milk? Any suggestions? Such an easy recipe with ingredients I'm never out of...I will figure out what I did wrong!

    Doubled the recipe then added 1 tsp of nutmeg. Taste just like a donut. coat with butter then shake cinnamon / sugar over all.
