Great biscuits - very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and used butter-flavored shortening and upped the sugar to a Tbsp. After mixing the dough together I let it set in the fridge for a few hours before rolling it out and cuttting it. I didn't brush the biscuits with buttermilk, but with melted butter during the last five minutes of baking. They come out light, moist, and fluffy. Plus they rise nice and high. Overall, very good especially the next day with butter and jelly.

These biscuits had a very good flavor. I didn't have self-rising flour so added 1 1/4 tsp baking powder and pinch of salt for each cup flour. They didn't darken but were a light golden brown.

Delicious biscuits!! These biscuits taste like the ones my southern grandmother made when I was a child. My daughter loved these and I will definitely be using this recipe again and again.
