    Perfect biscuits for my gravy. Grated frozen butter. Used half & half. Cut into squares and brushed with butter before baking & after. Tender, flaky and crispy on the outside. Will definitely use this recipe again.

    Fantastic! Didn’t use cookie cutter, just rolled into a square and cut them. Perfectly flaky.

    Fantastic. I made mine too thick do not compare size of your raw dough to store bought canned biscuits. It says roll out 1/4” thick and fold. For those that are not gifted with the contractor “eye” I’d suggest going about half thickness of the store bought canned biscuits for an even baked delicious biscuit. Great recipe!!!

    Came out perfect! We used them for biscuits and gravy. Crumbly on the outside and soft in the inside! Definitely saving this recipe. So easy!

    Perfect! I live at high altitude so I decreased the baking powder by half. Turned out beautifully and was so delicious!

    I love these biscuits! They’re so easy to make that you can do it before work for fresh biscuits with your morning coffee. The Yummly ingredients say 250g of flour but the website shows 2 cups. You need 2 cups.

    These are so fluffy and flaky inside. Absolutely delicious!!! This is perfect during this pandemic as stores are limited on inventory. I typically buy Mary B’s frozen biscuits but they are hard to find, these are just as good!!!

    My 12 year old made this recipe. The biscuits came out really great. When they came out of the oven, she brushed them with melted butter (tops and bottoms). We put honey on them and were in heaven.

    Turned out great! Definately suggest to butter the tops before going in the oven and afterwards.
    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.
