Have you ever had one of those recipes that gets lost and then finds it way back home again? I pulled out a cookbook I hadn't used in years and found this recipe tucked neatly inside. This is an impressive presentation for your guests.

This was delicious. I've never made biscuits from scratch before so I didn't have a biscuit cutter so I used an empty diced tomato can. They came out great! My husband is a cobbler addict said he likes regular cobbler better but I am so tired of regular cobbler. This will definatley be made again. It has also given me the confidence to try making regular biscuits from scratch.
