These are a favorite of my boys. For an extra treat I drop a handful of shredded cheese in.

I have made these with and without the cream of tartar, and much prefer them without. The cream of tartar, I thought, gave them a slight bitter aftertaste. With that correction, these are tender, fluffy, and ohhh so tasty. Not to mention EASY. Hope that little tip helps everyone.

Excellent easy receipe. Note - Baking Soda already has some Cream of Tarter, or similar acidic leavening in it, and this may be the reason Cream of Tarter may be left out without too noticeable an effect. Also note all dry ingredients should be mixed THROUGHLY before adding liquids. Finally, note there is a TIME LIMIT of about 15 to 20 minutes from the time you have added liquid to Baking Powder until you start baking them for Baking Power to have its best leavening(rising)affects. So be sure to preheat oven so its ready for baking when bisquits mixed and ready

I've been looking for a biscuit recipe that doesn't use hardened shortening/butter...as my daughter doesn't tolerate dairy or soy and we have to use oil for everything. Thanks for the awesome recipe! It's so forgiving, as I made many changes. I used half whole wheat flour and half ap flour; accidentally doubled the sugar; left out the cream of tartar; used 1 teaspoon salt (since I was not using butter); used olive oil instead of butter; used rice milk instead of milk. They turned out tender and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!
