Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 1376
Flaky, buttery buttermilk biscuits are perfect to serve with any meal.
J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 4449
This recipe will produce the biggest biscuits in the history of the world! Serve these gems with butter, preserves, honey, gravy or they can also be used as dinner rolls...you get the picture. The dough can also be prepared several hours, and up to a day ahead of time. If so, turn dough out onto aluminum foil that has been either floured, lightly buttered or lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Roll up foil until it is sealed, and refrigerate. Don't be surprised if your biscuits rise even higher because the baking powder has had more time to act in the dough. You may have to make a few batches before you get desired results: desired results equals huge mongo biscuits.
Mom's Baking Powder Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 334
This is the recipe my mom always made. I like to use the butter flavored shortening, but you can use regular. Amount of biscuits you get depends on how big around you make them and the thickness. My daughter likes me to make smaller ones.

These biscuits are cheesy and rich, and fairly close to the ones a famous seafood restaurant chain serves.

Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 215
This is my grandmother's biscuit recipe. It is my all-time favorite and has a really good flavor to it. Be sure not to roll out too thin, you want high biscuits! I usually just pat out the dough to the desired thickness, usually 1/2 inch.

This is a simple but tasty biscuit recipe. You don't taste the mayo, but it gives the biscuits a light and fluffy texture. For rolled and cut biscuits, use just enough milk to hold it together.
E-Z Drop Biscuits

These are a favorite of my boys. For an extra treat I drop a handful of shredded cheese in.
Butter Swim Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 120
These biscuits are literally swimming in butter prior to baking, hence the name. No need to butter them since they are buttery and fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or for dinner. Great use of pantry items during this stay-at-home order during the Coronavirus pandemic.
