    This is a decent standard biscuit recipe, but I think it benefits from another pinch of salt. As written, I found the biscuits a little bland. I did not have trouble with the biscuits rising as other commenters mentioned. I cut the dough by hand and baked at 375 on a silpat.

    This was the WORST biscuit recipe I have ever used. The biscuits did not rise and the biscuits come out tasting like powder. They crumble and the flavors don't meld at all. I tried both the food processor and cutting in the butter method and both times they came out with the same powder and crumbly taste. Will not be using this recipe again.

    Karenuh, I have been having same problem! My friend suggested my baking powder/soda might be old. I'm going to give fresh powder a try. Hope this helps.

    I've made this recipe at least 6 times & STILL can't get the biscuits to rise correctly. They always come out flatter than when they went in the oven. I desperately want them to look like a normal biscuit. Here's what I've tried (besides following the directions PERFECTLY): for my non-convection oven, I've done 375, 400 & 425; I've used parchment & not used it; I've used cookie sheets & cast iron; I cut straight down w/ cutter & don't twist it; my leavening is fresh; cut by hand&food proces.

    I tweaked this recipe just a bit...I added a bit more sugar and a smidge more salt. The first time I went straight by the recipe and they were a bit bland. I made them again this morning with little tweaks and they were PERFECT!
