Does it matter w

Does it matter whether I use skim milk, whole milk or butter milk. I only have skim milk and am wondering if they will turn out ok or if I should run to the store.

I made these and I will never use another recipe for biscuits.
Sonia,
Did you use unsalted butter or salted butter? That could make all of the difference. I have always used unsalted butter.
