Shirley Chorriher, a food scientist, wrote a science-based cookbook called “Cookwise” which has a terrific recipe for her “Touch of Grace” biscuits. They are feather light and the best I’ve ever had.

Best part about going to Popeye's. Use the drive-thru, get a half-dozen, skip the chicken.

Popeye's is the best fast food biscuit, followed by Hardee's and Bojangles'. For homemade biscuits, I like the simple recipe found on Martha White Flour sack, for Hot Rize biscuits.

A few years ago, a DLer posted a rave review and the recipe for Butter Swim Biscuits. They are REALLY good.
|by Anonymous||reply 7||03/30/2019|
I should add that in that recipe I linked to I mentions using White Lily flour, which is a southern brand. Pilsburys or King Arthur flour is made from a different type of wheat which has more gluten. White Lily is made from lower-gluten winter red wheat and makes a more tender crumb.
Her recipe also makes a very wet dough and if you see the women at Hardee’s making their dough in tv commercials, theirs is a very soft, wet dough. The extra moisture makes them bake up puffy and light. Nothing is worse than a sense, dry biscuit.

Yes, I have. Not too often, though, because it's too easy to eat the whole batch in one day. (They're that good.) I've also tried cutting the recipe in half and baking it as a loaf. That works well, too, and limits the piggishness.

To be honest, I usually use bisquick and the biscuits come out delicious. The recipe provided above in this thread is for self-rising flour, which, like bisquick, already has baking powder and salt in it. Bisquick adds the shortening too, so you can either add milk or cream to make the dough. I have made biscuits from scratch, which includes using regular flour and adding baking powder, but that's a riskier proposition, since baking powder won't make the biscuits rise if it's past its expiration date. But there's a sweet potato biscuit that a friend of mine makes that is really yummy. Basically, you just add some mashed sweet potato to the flour, baking powder, shortening mixture (or use self-rising flour as above). It substitutes for some of the liquid in other recipes.

Try Tudor's when you're in WV. Biscuitville in NC was originally the idea of the Tudor's guy.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||03/30/2019|
Came here to say that, R20. Hardee’s cinnamon raisin biscuits covered in that thick glaze. I don’t know if it should be a considered a “good” biscuit, but definitely a rare guilty pleasure. I used to eat them every Saturday morning when I was a surprisingly not fat kid. I also second Tudor’s. I live in WV and will have one on occasion. They are massive, crispy and buttery on the outside, and the fluffy center melts in your mouth. Very good with an egg and slice of bacon in between. I’m leaving this thread while I’m still skinny.

I grew up in an area that did not value a good biscuit. It wasn’t until my 20s at a truck stop in Tennessee that I actually had an amazing biscuit! Ever since then I have a softspot for them. I went to Yardbird in LA recently and their biscuits were pretty great.
I too love Popeyes biscuits!

All those big fast food chains make their biscuits with something other than real butter. The best biscuits are made with natural butter.

But the author of that piece agrees with me that butter biscuits are a better product. She mentions shortening is cheaper and easier to work with.
That's what you use in your defense?
|by Anonymous||reply 46||03/31/2019|
She also says it is a matter of personal taste and that shortening will never give you a bad biscuit. Shortening tends to make a lighter fluffier biscuit, whereas butter based biscuits tend to be denser, because it tends to create larger gluten strands.

I can't eat them anymore (wheat! carbs!), but I make a version where you melt the butter, let it get as cool as possible without reverting to solid form, and then stir the butter into ice-cold buttermilk so it forms tiny beads. Then mix with your dry ingredients. You get luscious, tender, flavorful biscuits.
That's what I aim for, a biscuit with real flavor, unlike these bland things some of you love.
