Surely you jest!
My momma could stir up a batch of biscuits as fast as you can pop open that silly tube of blah biscuits.
I learned to do it as well as but not as fast - but, my boys couldn't tell if they were Grammoms or mine!
My two sons have each mastered the art of buttermilk biscuits and they are a weekend staple at each of their homes.

After fussing at Nancy G, I thought I should tell a bit more and share some of the variations my family loves....

Prepare a muffin pan (non-stitck works best) with a few chopped pecans in each cup and a generous teaspoon of maple syrup  (you can use pancake syrup) 
Roll out your favorite basic biscuit dough about 1/4 inch thick - use a light touch on the rolling pin.  Sprinkle with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon and butter.  Roll up jellyroll style and slice into twelve portions.  Place cut side down in prepared pans.  Bake at 400 for about fifteen minutes or until nicely browned. 
Turn out on a foil lined cookie sheet and let pan rest over them a moment or so for the nice gooey nuts and syrup to run down over them.  Serve hot.

I'll share some other ways to dress up basic homemade biscuits later.

Frances...

I know and I guess I should be ashame but I just never make biscuits that much.  I did make the Cheddar biscuits like you get at Red Lobster a few times.  I pretty much make everything else home-made though!!  If I do make biscuits, I use Bisquit!   I love Buttermilk biscuits the best...would you please share a Buttermilk Bisquick recipe with me?!

Thanks Frances!

I do have a recipe or I should say a mock recipe for the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits and the "REAL" ones are very good but I have not made the copy cat ones because it uses Bisquick and I never have any of that in the house.  (I know I can make my own "bisquick type mixture I guess I really don't want to make home made biscuits! I follow the directions...Peel label, split can at seam....bake and eat)
I do love a good hot out of the oven biscuit, they are rarely ever good the following day, but it is an art and one that I have not bothered to master.
If anyone is interested in the copy cat recipe here it is.
Cheddar Biscuits
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
3/4 Cup whole milk
4 Tb butter (This recipe doe not give an option to use margarine)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 Heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
Topping:
2 Tb butter melted
1/4 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
pinch of salt
Directions:
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl suing a pastry cutter or large fork. There should be small chunks of butter that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk and 1/4 tsp garlic.  Mix by hand until combined. Do not over mix.
Drop by approximately 1/4 Cup portions onto un greased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn a light brown.
When you take the biscuits from the oven melt the butter for the topping and add the rest of the topping ingredients.  Use a brush to spread this over the tops of all the biscuits, use all the butter.  Makes 12 biscuits.

Susan...
just for you!

Buttermilk biscuits:

Ingredients

·         4 cups self-rising flour

·         1 tablespoon white sugar

·         1 tablespoon baking powder

·         2/3 cup shortening

·         2 cups buttermilk

·         1/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

1.    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease two baking sheets.

2.    In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add 2 cups buttermilk and mix just to moisten.

3.    Roll out dough to 1 inch thick and cut into biscuits. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets; brush tops with remaining 1/4 cup buttermilk.

4.    Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.

 OR.......


Buttermilk biscuits:

Ingredients

·         1/2 cup cold butter or margarine

·         2 1/4 c self rising soft wheat flour *

·         1 1/4 c buttermilk (or whole milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice added)

·         flour for dusting

·         melted butter for brushing baked biscuits

Instructions

1.    Cut butter with a into 1/4-inch-thick slices.Put butter slices on top of flour in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour with a long tined fork until crumbly. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

2.    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed. With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour. Fold dough over into itself, like you are folding a piece of paper into a letter, in three sections. Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches).

3.    Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place, side by side, on a parchment paper-lined or lightly greased cookie sheet. Try to make sure they touch because this will help them rise higher.

4.    Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; brush with 2 Tbsp. melted butter.

Here, here Gale !!  I prefer toast or a nice white hard roll.  The only time I ever have a biscuit (right out of the cardboard can) is when I get hungry for sausage gravy.

My, my! you would think biscuits were difficult!  My son's and I use this.....

I use a Basic Buttermilk Biscuits recipe...
     Sift together   2 Cups All Purpose Flour
                             1 teaspoon Baking Powder
                             1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
                              1/4 teaspoon Salt

    Cut in (use pastry blender or two knives- scissor fashion)     1/2 Cup Crisco (or other solid shortening)
                   until mixture has particles the size of small peas

     Stir in    1 Cup Buttermilk

     Mix lightly but thoroughly.  Turn out on floured board.  Knead lightly to bring all together in a ball.  Pat or roll to about 1/2 inch or so in thickness.  Cut and place on lightly greased baking sheet.'

     Bake in preheated 425 oven   12 - 15 minutes.

   makes about 20 2 inch biscuits

Recipe may be halved or doubled easily.


I also have a recipe which uses oil instead of solid shortening for those who are wary of consuming trans-fats.
I'll post it later as well as ways to make basic dough extra yummy.
