Seems like way too much baking powder. I think i'll try it but with only 1 or 2 tsp baking powder.

Easy to make and bake, but they taste dry and are crumbly.

OH MY GOSH!!! THIS IS IT! the recipe i have been looking for. i have tried other biscuit recipes which ended up still tasting doughy and "floured" on top. i did omit the salt in the recipe but other thn that it did taste just like the restarant's ( though the tops didn't brown at all). i think the secret w/this recipe....just enough milk to pull the "cornmealed flour mixture" together w/o leaving it wet and sticky. thanks so much. i have found something better than the refrigerated brand ( that will also be CHEAPER to make).plan on trying other recipes as well to see how they turn out

I made this recipes and was more than pleased. It was very close to the product. Thank you for sharing! I did not roll them though, I made them like regular cut biscuits.
