Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I didn't have any buttermilk so I used sour milk instead and I used instant mashed potatoes in place of real ones. I must say the dough is very soft and sticky and impossible to knead unless you knead more flour in it as you knead and shape it. My biscuits didn't rise and would barely brown only after I pulled them back out of the oven and brushed them with melted butter. They took way longer to bake then recipe states. Having said this they didn't turn out with a nice soft texture which my husband really liked but I can't say I liked them much myself. If I make them again I will used the buttermilk as stated since this might be why mine didn't rise and I'll use real mashed potatoes instead of instant. I do this recipe has potential if it's tweaked a bit though. I will add a little more flour, a pinch more salt and a bit more baking powder next time and see how it turns out. I'm giving it 4 stars because of it's soft, moist texture and because I think with a little tweaking could be a very good recipe.
