Wonderful recipe. Made them twice and family loved them. Will make often and thanks for sharing. Mine burned at 12 minutes so I reduced the cook time. Worth more than 5 stars.

I loved these biscuits, but used whole milk on the tops of biscuits..turned out perfect! Served them with sausage gravy, cheesy scrambled eggs and tater tots..This was a special breakfast..

Excellent recipe. I sliced my butter into small slices to make it easier to *cut* in. These only made 6 big but would have made 8 regular size.

I made these for breakfast on Sunday morning and ate them with honey - so good! I did not have enough flour left so I used 1/2 cup of corn masa flour and I did not add baking soda, just the 3 teaspoons of baking powder. These are quick and easy to make.

I've been looking for a great biscuit recipe and I think I've found my "go to".

Quite good, and easy enough to make. Would've liked them to have been a little lighter and fluffier. Still looking for that really light and fluffy.

Unfortunately I didn't care for these at all. They rose nicely and were light and fluffy but even though I added an extra tbsp. of butter they still tasted like baking powder. I much prefer the buttermilk cheddar biscuits posted on this site.

This is the best recipe for homemade biscuits I have ever made. For years I have looked for a recipe that would make biscuits like my Mom had made when I was young; my search is over. This are BIG biscuits, no matter how you cut them because the rise is big. They aren't heavy, because there isn't much fat in them and the buttermilk (I made my own, I never seem to have any on hand) keeps the biscuit tender not hard. Really great biscuit recipe. Thank you for sharing.
