Quick and easy biscuits. I added dried orange essence cranberries and some orange zest. They were more biscuit like than scones but yummy just the same! Thank you for a quick and easy recipe.

Very good biscuit/scones which we enjoyed with Bacon & Leek Quiche recipe#36807. The only change I made was using regular raisins instead of the suggested golden raisins. Thanks for sharing!
