This is a simple but tasty biscuit recipe. You don't taste the mayo, but it gives the biscuits a light and fluffy texture. For rolled and cut biscuits, use just enough milk to hold it together.
J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 4421
This recipe will produce the biggest biscuits in the history of the world! Serve these gems with butter, preserves, honey, gravy or they can also be used as dinner rolls...you get the picture. The dough can also be prepared several hours, and up to a day ahead of time. If so, turn dough out onto aluminum foil that has been either floured, lightly buttered or lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Roll up foil until it is sealed, and refrigerate. Don't be surprised if your biscuits rise even higher because the baking powder has had more time to act in the dough. You may have to make a few batches before you get desired results: desired results equals huge mongo biscuits.

Southern Cream Biscuits
Biscuits are hotly debated, but to me these bring together all the best aspects of any great biscuit. They are just salty enough, crispy around the edges, soft and tender in the middle, and never dry or crumbly. There's nothing dusty or bland about these beautiful Southern cream biscuits!

These biscuits are cheesy and rich, and fairly close to the ones a famous seafood restaurant chain serves.
Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 210
This is my grandmother's biscuit recipe. It is my all-time favorite and has a really good flavor to it. Be sure not to roll out too thin, you want high biscuits! I usually just pat out the dough to the desired thickness, usually 1/2 inch.

A quick tea time treat. Serve warm, buttered, and with jam or honey.
Butter Swim Biscuits
Rating: 4.5 stars 107
These biscuits are literally swimming in butter prior to baking, hence the name. No need to butter them since they are buttery and fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or for dinner. Great use of pantry items during this stay-at-home order during the Coronavirus pandemic.

This is the old-time recipe from our grandmamas. There is no real measurement in this for the shortening. Wonderful and tasty heavy biscuit from the old times. Great with homemade sausage gravy. Always always always use White Lily® flour for the fluffiest biscuits. I usually don't always use all of the buttermilk. I seem to usually have just under a 1/4 cup leftover.

This is a great recipe, different than the usual biscuit. Serve piping hot with butter, jam, or honey.
Greg's Southern Biscuits

Light and fluffy and the closest thing I've found to my grandmother's biscuits. Delicious for jams, butter, honey, corn syrup, or just great bread for any meal. My grandmother used to make them pretty much every day.
