      These rise up high, & are light, fluffy, & delicious! They freeze well, so one batch gives me plenty of spares for future enjoyment.

      Made thes to go with breakfast and DH has claimed them as his FAV biscuits. That's saying something as I've made a lot of differant recipes that we've enjoyed. This went together easy with no wait time for rising and resulted in a biscuit that was light and fluffy inside with a nice crispy outside. This will be my new go to biscuit.

      What a great biscuit. These are just like the ones Mom used to make. I really enjoyed them, and my picky eaters also liked them. I may be more in love since it was a trip down memory lane for me. Thanks for posting an old classic.
