    Really good - fluffy and light, very delicious. I used 1/4 cup vegetable oil instead of 1/3 cup and greased the pan the second time I made them, which (I thought) really improved the flavor and made them easier to handle. Definitely try if you have sourdough starter around.  -  12 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When I took these out of the oven, my boyfriend thought they were cookies not biscuits. They are more like a soft cookie than a biscuit, but, they are pretty tasty and good with butter spread on top.  -  16 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These biscuits were really light and fluffy. They needed a little more taste, next time I will add a little more salt and a little butter in the dough. I used a little extra baking soda to make them more fluffy and less like scones.  -  04 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
