    Good biscuit. Got an inch rise. Light, fluffy, flavorful.
    See Angel Biscuits for more flauntings.

    Well, I'm more of a griller than a baker but these look like something I need to coerce my wife in to trying. She's the baker! Thanks. These look great.

    My best friends mother made the best angel biscuits in the world but when she "shared" her recipe, it was obvious she left SOMETHING out. She swore not. For Beth and I they came out like half the size and none of the taste! I threw that one away YEARS ago but will hopefully try yours KNOWING you have all the ingredients. Thanks!

    I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe for years! This sounds so good. What a great recipe, Jett! (Stacking them with bacon and cheese does sound good, doesn't it?) YUM! Thanks so much for another wonderful recipe! Ohh apple jelly, too! Woowoo! Heavenly!

    Oh, yes, we enjoyed these! Stacked them with bacon, cheese, and egg, and the leftovers next day weren't bitter.
