  • Really great recipe! I put them on top of my chicken pot pie instead of crust. Alone, they are a really standard biscuit that I thought were perfect with jelly. Recipe worked great and they were moist enough. I’ll be saving this one to make again.

  • Very tasty! I added a tablespoon of fresh chopped thyme, and when they came out of oven rubbed some butter on top then sprinkled with a tiny bit of sea salt. Very good!

    Thank you for this recipe! I tend to get migraines from dairy (particularly full fat liquids and most cheeses). I tried a recipe from YouTube making biscuits with whipping cream. It was easy to make, and tasted good, but I ended up with a migraine after. I just want an easy to make biscuit recipe without milk, whipping cream, etc. that doesn’t trigger migraines for me, so again…Thank You!

    Based on other reviews (and other recipes) I changed this recipe up with great success: decreased water to 1/2 cup, added 1 egg, 3 tsp. sugar and 1 tsp dried chives. Increased salt to 1 tsp (as I was using unsalted butter). Came out very good – almost as good as biscuits made with milk. Thanks for inspiring me to try a new recipe.

    I used cold butter and cold Crisco, 1/2 rye flour, cold water and apple cider vinegar mixture for moisture, chilled the dough for 10 minutes before manipulating, and did envelope folds for flakiness and layers. Before chilling the dough I also added good cheese and dried rosemary. Great base recipe, easy to add substitutions and make it your own!

    I started with 2 parts reciepe but mistakenly found i had half& half grass fed not heavy cream …so…i found your simple but yet very good ideas here so i exchanged. 3/4 cup to half&half instead of milk and 4 tbsp of butter and used tiger nut flour since gluten flours like wheat &white , corn really cause bad pains to my stomach came out wonderfully. I also love to bake when i dont work as a care giver(which i love it also) thanks for sharing!!!! Zoey my friends call me.
