These flaky biscuits from Pies 'n' Thighs co-owner Sarah Buck -- crispy on the edges, soft and buttery on the inside -- are substantial enough to serve with fried eggs or hearty sausage gravy.

    I loved this recipe! I used whole wheat pastry flour in my and some extra buttermilk to brush the tops, instead of egg and cream. This made a nice crunchy top to go along with the crunchy bottom. They were super flaky and buttery on the inside. LOVE!

    I didn't care for these. I made the recipe with the addition of Soda. They were salty and heavy. Yes, I used unsalted butter. Will stick to my usual biscuit recipe. They may not be this high, but they had a generally better taste.

    I've made these twice and they turn out perfect each time. This last time I made them up until the baking step and then put them in the fridge. Since I wanted them fresh out of the oven for dinner, I didn't want to bake them too far in advance. I put them in the oven 20 minutes before dinner was ready and they were perfect again!

    I made these tonight and they were every bit as good as they looked on air. Did not have pastry flour, so substituted cake flour. The biscuits were light, flaky, and relatively easy. I also halved the recipe, yielding 8 generous, beautiful biscuits.

    Also, this recipe doesn't mention the big pinch of baking soda that was added when they were making the biscuits on the show.

    I was really bummed that they ran out of time on this episode and the Pies n Thighs woman didn't get to finish demonstrating the recipe. Sometimes I get really frustrated with whoever directs Martha's show!
