  • “07/04/09: I subbed 1/4 c canola oil for the 1/2 c shortening and these turned out great! This batch only needed to bake ten minutes. The dough was very sticky prior to rolling, but a generous amount of flour made it work out perfectly. Thank you for a keeper! 07/05/09: Since mmy hens lay large eggs, today I used only 1/2 cup of milk.The dough was perfect!These popover type biscuits are just wonderful and oh, so easy.”

  • “I have a similar recipe from when I was growing up called Sky High biscuits that uses WWF. But I wanted to use milk and shortening (thank goodness for the ingredient filter!). I made these for a dinner last night, went like hotcakes! Almost like the KFC biscuit I had earlier (which had got me in the biscuit mood). I would omit the butter on top, wasn’t really needed. But SO good, going to be my staple!”

  • “these are so good and so easy to make.i had a little grainyness in the texture but that wass probably because i didn’t sift the drey ingredients.will do next time.they rose perfectly and were so flaky.”
