    A bit salty but I'll remember that next time. Light and fluffy with the extra milk as prescribed.

    Perfectly flaky! Soft in the inside and crunchy on the outside. I brushed the dough with a bit of milk and sprinkled garlic powder on top before baking.

    These came out really flat. I followed the directions. I’m not sure what happened.

    Really great and simple biscuit recipe. I enjoyed it so much that I made it once and again with one change. Instead of course salt, I used regular salt on the second batch and it was perfect.

    these were really good. had a crispy outside and tender inside. i rolled them out for cut biscuits instead of drop biscuits. i shouldve rolled them much thicker cuz they were a little flat. will make again but roll out really thick.

    I made these to go with some scrambled eggs for supper and they were delicious! They are easy to make and the entire family loved them!

    I made the recipe, using the biscuit to cover newly made Chicken Pot pie. Purposely made the mix a little thin and spoon dropped onto the pot pie, covering most of the surface. Placed it into a 425 degree oven and cooked for about 12 minutes. Then paced under broiler a few minutes to make biscuit dough brown and flaky on top, and moist on pot pie. Will never use Bisquick again.
