My husband is the biggest kid/picky eater out there. The first time I made these, they were a bit dry. I always used half a recipie, cuz it's just the two of us until our daughter gets older. Well, I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. It was just the kick it needed! Heather Adam Austin, TX

I couldn't think of a faster, easier way to make light and fluffy biscuits. I even substitited margarine for shortening and they were still perfect!

I used butter-flavor crisco and buttermilk instead of milk. These were surprisingly tender but a little bland. I won't make them again.
