This recipe is fantastic!! The biscuit turned out just right, and it was so easy to make!! I will keep making these for breakfast and tea time for a long time to come. <br/><br/>I have been a big fan of Anne of Green Gables. It makes me romantic to have these Ruby Tea Biscuit for my tea time. Thank you for posting!!
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
Simple recipe for kids to follow, although the actual cookbook contains an explanation of the terms such as "cut in", so kids that are new to baking might still need extra help. These taste so delicious, you'll need to make an extra batch as they'll disappear so fast!
Made it today with my 4yo DS. Used 1/2 whole wheat 1/2 white flour and I had no shortening so I used a margerine/butter mixture. Filled with strawberry jam. Turned out flaky and yummy...DS wanted to eat them all! I like jam with my biscuits so this saved me the trouble of having to put it on later. Thanks for the nice idea of adding it on before baking!
