Stormy Day bake

We have some serious winter weather today,  no bread in the house, too late to start a bread to have with lunch so I thought Cherie made Mac 'n Cheese yesterday biscuits would go with the left overs.

Such beautiful high-rise biscuits!  I have tried for years to make biscuits like these.  Would you please share the rrecipe? Thanks.

This is more or less the recipe, I added cheese to these and at other times add fresh cranberries or soaked raisins.  I think the secret to making them tender is to use minimal bench flour and work the batter as little as possible.  I think the original recipe asked for butter milk and no cream to tartar but I have been using normal milk with good results.  The rest time seems to make a difference to the amount of rise you experience in the oven.

P.S.  Often when using cheese I cut back on the salt
