    This comes from the Anne of Green Gables cookbook. These biscuits are wonderful, and one of the first things I learned how to make. Please note the recipe is designed for kids and writing as written.

      Delightful! I used margarine instead of shortening, otherwise made just as directed. The dough was so soft but not sticky at all, and the biscuits were light and moist. I used raspberry jam and dusted the tops (including the little ones) with some powdered sugar. Loved these - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
