    Best biscuits my grown children ask for them all the time

    They turned out ok. My fault because I didn’t have actual buttermilk and had to substitute skim milk (eww). Next time I make these, I’ll make sure I have actual buttermilk and use salted butter instead of unsalted. Side note: Freezing the butter and grating it into the flour is a thousand times easier. 👍🏼

    Amazing. Unbelievable. So delicious. I made a deconstructed chicken pot pie and these biscuits tasted amazing underneath it!

    Changed buttermilk to milk. Everything else I followed directions and they turned out pretty good. They are a bit dense but they taste a lot like Pilsbury biscuits and act a little bit like the "Flaky Layers" because of the folding (they open into halves pretty easily without cutting). I will be playing with this recipe a bit to make them more like how I want but as far as taste goes these are great and did well both times I made them. Once for sausage biscuits and gravy and another time for just biscuits with butter and jelly (I did increase the sugar on that attempt and again turned out great for my purposes).

    Pretty good! Mine were a little dry, probably my fault. Good for my first try.

    AMAZING!!! The best biscuits I’ve ever eaten. I did mix in an additional Tbs of honey with the buttermilk and enjoyed getting that surprise of honey here and there

    Mine came out flat but that was my error. I melted the butter which I wasn’t supposed to do and I separated them on the baking sheet. I just read that to get fluffy biscuits, the butter has to be COLD and the biscuits need to be touching each other, like bunched up to rise up. That was mentioned in the recipe, but I forgot. Maybe the air surrounding them made them cooler. If the oven isn’t hot enough it can cause the biscuits to be flat.

    My biscuits came out totally flat and I didn't get a response from the Homesick Texan about why that might have happened.

    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. 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!!!
