  1. Years ago (1987-1993) I worked there. I use to make the biscuits. Instead of butter the original recipe used butter flavored Crisco.
  2. I'll try this as I like their biscuits so much. I sort of get a tiny bit of sweetness in them so I wonder if there isn't a pinch of sugar in them.
  3. I'm going to try this but I only have regular milk. How much of a difference will that make?
    1. Measure 1 Cup of your milk (whole or 2%), pour it into a bowl, add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. I have a bottle in the fridge for that very reason.
  4. I have a question about making these without a cast iron skillet. I don’t own one. Can they be cut out and placed close together on a cookie sheet?
