The dough was on the dry side but I went ahead and followed through the recipe without adding more milk. The result were nice flavor biscuits. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

These ARE wonderful -- fresh out of the oven with butter and jelly on them they're great, and they're even tasty cold the next day with only butter on them!
