worked like a charm no issues
biscuits were tender and flavorful. Will definitely make again.
So simple and great!
I got flaky, buttery, delectable biscuits with just three ingredients and a beginner skill set. Thumbs up for me.
Great it just so happened that I had the right ingredients on hand. I love White Lily flour for baking!

I don’t know why but they turned out very doughy and not crumbly like I expect biscuits to be. Probably user-error. Oh well.

ive never had good luck at making really good biscuits and your description of "raggy" let me know why! These turned out perfectly 2 days in a row so thank you!!!

In Australia we call these scones and this is a recipe my grandmother used and i also use. It is quick easy and very reliable. You can substitute the butter for 1 cup of cream give or take half a cup of cream extra depending on the flour you use. absolutely scrumptious with strawberry conserve and fresh whipped cream and a nice hot cup of tea.
