This recipe actually came in the instruction manual of my kitchenaid mixer. I have modified it a little as I have experimented with making biscuits. In the south biscuits are the building blocks of any good breakfast. Once you've made a good biscuit, the options are endless. I usually make these on the weekend. My favorites are sausage gravy over biscuits, bacon or sausage egg and cheese, and jelly/jam biscuits.
