Sage Cornmeal Biscuits Recipe

My family loves these outstanding savory biscuits with eggs and sausage at breakfast or with meat at dinner. They bake up light and tender and have just the right amount of sage. —Mary Kincaid, Bostic, North Carolina

"I used self rising flour and did not add soda and baking powder, so they did NOT rise. I got 10, but they were about a half inch thick. They had an ok flavor, but I will not try them again."

"These were the lightest biscuits I have ever made. In the interest of time, because these were a last minute add on to a soup. I just dropped them onto a cookie sheet....they weren't as pretty, but they were light and rustic looking. They were a hit. I used Crisco as my shortening."

"Mmmmm, these biscuits.....I want to eat another one.... I mixed up the dough in the food processor but added the milk by hand - prevents you having to cut in the shortening and having uneven lumps. They were delicious - so fluffy and crispy!"

"I was looking for recipes to use up some extra cornmeal I have, and hoping for something that wasn't just plain old cornbread. These biscuits were great! I rolled the dough a little too thin, next time I will remember to roll it 3/4" as directed."
