    WildLightning's Note:

    This biscuit recipe comes from my mother-in-law. I frequently "lose" the little index card it is written on, and when I try other recipes, none ever match up. I thought to put this on here, so I would never loose it again! :) I hope you enjoy these yummy biscuits as much as I always do.

      Easy and with a hint of sweetness. I partially melted the butter and then just threw it in my stand mixer and it worked out well. Will definitely make these again.

      I just made these and they were wonderful! very flaky! i used shortening instead of butter and next time i make them i will use a little less sugar or maybe none at all and add a cup of cheddar to make some cheddar biscuit.

      I just made these biscuits and they turned out well. I would suggest using less sugar and also I would brush the biscuits with melted butter once they are done. I will make these again and try to modify the recipe a little more to my liking and update my review. :)
