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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good recipe. I made it without shortening, just added 1-2 tablespoon butter. Thank you Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published

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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
the person who use regular all purpose flour can use baking soda with the all purpose flour to help the biscuits rise item not reviewed by moderator and published
