      Last night I was looking for something to go with a cabbage chili soup and these popped up. They are wonderful (hubby loves anything with cornmeal). They turned out light and fluffy with just enough cornmeal to give them an interesting texture. I did add 2 more tsps. of sugar but that was to satisfy hubbys taste buds. After cutting in the butter I chilled it for about an hour to make sure the little pieces of butter were very cold and am sure this made a difference. Thanks for such an easy and great tasting biscuit recipe. Highly recommend.
