    These are great! Easy to make. i served mine with a country gravy made from bacon grease. Unfortunately I rolled them out a little thin, but the middle was still soft woth an excellent crust.

    it was great! become our new favorite biscuit recipe. third time making it.
    I've made a LOT of biscuits ( I used to work in a flour mill on food product development). This is my all time favorite and I use it often. I go rustic and just cut the dough into squares and bake instead of fussing over shapes. No "re-rolling".

    Wow! Way better than I expected! I used good butter and whole milk, then kneaded the dough for several minutes. They baked up brown and flaky. This will be my new go-to biscuit recipe!

    Quick, easy, tasty. Used sour milk instead of butter milk, double the butter, and a circle cutter.

    excellent recipe, went great with sausage gravy. Next time i think ill use frozen butter and grate it. Possibly keep some frozen grated butter on hand for craving this recipe on weekend.
