I think my most favorite fast food biscuit is at Bojangles and I have one located in walking distance from me so when I get the urge, I don't have far to go to get one. However, I would really love to make my own. Now that I am retired I can really hone my bread making techniques. This is a great recipe to start with.

In my eyes, my Grandmother was the biscuit queen. When my sons were 5 and 7, we moved in with her and they were introduced to biscuits. The youngest one would sneak them off the table to have for later because he loved them so much. I could never make them as well as she did even after she showed me like zillion times.

In other countries, I believe their biscuits are more like a this recipe in reference to that because I've always wanted to know how they made their version although I never understood why they were called biscuits instead of cookies. I'm thinking with the distribution of the butter, these are going to be really flaky or kinda like shortbread maybe? Hmmmm

I don't think the biscuits look very good,really thin and overdone on the bottom.I think I would make them thicker like KFC used to do.Am going to try them and see how they turn out.

A biscuit that you don't knead, but it is not a drop biscuit? I am used to one or the other, but not nothing. The buttermilk with the baking soda will give the biscuits a nice rise. Homemade biscuits are so much better than the ones that come in those cardboard containers that you bust open. They are also more filling.
