    This is my new favorite biscuit recipe. It’s so much easier to make since you melt the butter rather than cut it into the flour. I madethem this morning, sliced the, and put sliced honey ham and cheddar cheese inside. YUM! Thanks, Rachel, I so enjoy your recipes!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes, that’s what I like about melting the butter too! Thank you Sophia!

  • Sorry, that’s an extra 1/2-cup flour.

  • Rachel, I did my usual dump it all in at once and added about an extra half-cup per batch, mine was doubled, just so they get done quickly, and they are spectacular! Now that I know they’re delicious I’ll try the slower stirring un the dry ingredients, too, because I love your biscuit recipe! They are absolutely light and fluffy, so you really delivered a great product! Thank you, can’t wait to try more!! Keep ’em coming and I’ll watch for your cookbook, and it’s so great of you to share recipes that work. Fantastic work!!!

    Ok. I’ll give biscuits another try. I make so many lovely baked goods but biscuits and pies elude me.
    As for Easter, our church has two services with a pancake breakfast in between! Pancakes, eggs,sausage, bacon and homefries! Food and gellowship all in one place

    Same question – why the dent? I’ve heard of doing it for burgers so they don’t get too thick in the middle but obviously burgers are nothing like biscuits (thank goodness, because I like my biscuits to plump up! ;)

    • Rachel Schultz

      It helps them rise evenly.

  • I do love biscuits, and they’re so easy to make at home! My problem is I then want to eat the entire batch at once! Have you ever made cheddar biscuits like these? http://purplefoodie.com/cheddar-cheese-biscuits/ They’re amazing.

    What is the purpose of pressing a dent into each biscuit before you bake it?

    Re: brunch…can you go to an earlier service if you want to go out after? Ours has a service at 9:00 and then at 10:30 so 11 am brunch would be do-able if you went early. Too bad they don’t offer brunch earlier and then you could eat and then go to church. Or something like that….
