    DELICIOUS! To make all-purpose flour into self rising flour, whisk together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. This will make 1 cup self rising flour. Double for this recipe. I also doubled the shortening with butter flavored Crisco. Moist and wonderful!
    Great recipe. I added a smidgeon more shortening based on other reviewer comments. I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made it by adding 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt to 2 cups all-purpose flour. My family really enjoyed these.
    Very good recipe. I made it without shortening, just added 1-2 tablespoon butter. Thank you Paula!
    These biscuits are really delicious and couldn?t be more simple! I bake the biscuits for about 15 mins, depending on the size, before brushing the tops with melted butter, to which I add dried parsley and about ¼ teaspoon of garlic power. Then I pop them back in for a minute or two more to get them nice and brown. Just keep an eye on them. I also add about ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder to the batter before baking. They quickly became a staple at many a Sunday dinner. Tasty, soft, and wonderful!
    Yummmmm! Cooked them in a muffin pan. Perfect Southern biscuits! Adding garlic next time.

    just add a little lemon juice to your cream to get a type of butter milk 
    The biscuits are great. Moist and fluffy. Family loves them.
    These were good and easy to make. I used 2% milk and they tasted just fine but I think if I would have used buttermilk it probably would have made them tast better.
    the person who use regular all purpose flour can use baking soda with the all purpose flour to help the biscuits rise
    I dont have buttermilk what else can i use i only got heavy cream?
    hi,can i use regular all purpose flour or bread flour ,instead self rising flour?Please help.thanks.
    My family loved them! Itia a great recipe! I didnt have buttermilk, so I substituted with regular milk and they were fantastic!Thanks Paula
    These are the best! I have half of my home town making these. For those of you who think they are a bit 'dry' add another 1/3 cup shortening, I use butter flavored Crisco. And don't over stir or over cook. Put the butter on in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Keep trying, they are so worth the comments from your friends and guests.
    THIS RECIPE IS OH SO GOOD BUT ADDICTING. MAKES ME FEEL GUILTY EATING SO MANY BUT SO WORTH ALL IN THE SAME!!! I USED COLD BUTTER INSTEAD OF SHORTENING. I GOT SUM IN THE OVEN..
    i think they are the greatest i ever ate i give them 5 stars
    These are just plain great. Those of you who gave it a low rating must be doing something wrong.
    They were OK but I too have definitely had better.
    I made these for thanksgiving and was quite disappointed. They came out very dry. Normally I love Ms Deen's recipes but not this one.
    We loved this recipe. Similar to Red Lobster's cheddar biscuits. Moist and full of flavor
    These are the best biscuits you will ever eat. EVER!!

    Just one word ---- YUMMO!
    These are really good and much like Red Lobster's. They could use a bit more garlic, however.

    These biscuits wernt all that i've had better.
    these were just as good as my mother's
    These are wonderful! As Michael would say, YUM!
    I had trouble getting mine to brown, even brushing the top with butter, but they tasted wonderful!
    All I have to say is delicious.
     

     
    thank you
    easy & very good!
    These cheese biscuits are awesome
    The melted butter rub makes a huge difference. I am not a pastry baker by any means and this made me feel like I can do it now.
