Well, there were some great comments, and despite the negative ones, I'm going to try these simply because my husband has told me that I can't make biscuits.

@kris...if you make sure to use salted butter it should turn out fine. I've made this recipe exactly as written 5 times now, even tripled it one time, and have had no problems. Most of the time the "hockey puck" dilemma comes from overworking the dough. Once you add the liquid, mix as little as possible. This is the first recipe I've ever made that DIDN'T turn out like hockey pucks!

THESE NEED SALT! I made these for a large family get together and they were an embarrassing basket of hockey pucks. My fault for not realizing that salt is essential to any bread.
