    These biscuits where great. This one is a keeper.

    Martha spoke of what I assume is this recipe when on the premire Emeril Lagassi Show, but she told emeril that the bisquits had Thyme, Maple Syrup and Honey (from Martha's own bees). It sounds wonderful, but I'm wondering if the Maple Syrup amount is perhaps halved and the other half using honey? Martha HELP! :-) - Deb

    Martha said that to test for baking soda freshness, you put some baking soda into water and it will foam. Not so--- To test for functionality, add some baking soda to vinegar and it will foam.

    I made the biscuits and I couldn't taste much of the sweet syrup. You would have to brush a lot on after they were baked too. It's basically just a really good buttermilk biscuit recipe and I didn't have one before! Tastes like Cracker Barrel biscuits.

    I also noticed Martha didn't use the maple/thyme mixture on the show and assumed it was brushed on the biscuits, but I came here for the recipe to be sure.

    I don't think she's rude to guests. She is gracious; Who dioesn't interrupt occasionally. I know I do and I think it is an ADD thing, not intentional. I am worse the older I get and have no intention of being rude and I don't think Martha does either. But you are right, someone does need to prompt as needed as we all forget from time to time.

    I came here because she didn't use the maple syrup on TV too. I kept hoping they would mention it before the show ended, because someone HAD to notice it between the guest star, producer, director, the audience, etc. It would really help the show if Martha would hire even one person who isn't scared to point out her errors, like on this recipe AND how rude she is to guests, cutting them off mid-sentence!

    You're right! There was no mention of brushing the tops of the biscuits with the remaining syrup! No wonder they turned such a lovely color on TV! Remember, test to be sure the baking powder is "fresh" or toss it!

    I noticed that as well. I am wondering if a heaping tsp of salt might be TOO much. Interested to hear before I attempt to make.

    The show did not really explain the final step of brushing on the maple syrup. Don't forget to do that or your biscuits will not be as good.
