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.

Lori maybe you are not cooking them hot enough or mixing to long my oven needs 425 for 15 min.

I can't wait to try these! I like recipes with real ingredients like butter and cream (I'm going to use real cream versus half and half). Anyone worried about fat content is stuck in the '80's. Saturated fats like butter and lard are not your enemy! Transfats and highly processed fats like Crisco and Canola oil (yes, canola) are far less healthy. And I'll take a teaspoon of sugar over nonsense like Splenda any day. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe! Thank you for sharing it
