    Gwen35's Note:

    Another oldie but goodie. Nice and light. I am sure everyone knows that in lieu of buttermilk, you can use "sour milk" (1 Tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice in a 1-cup measure and fill with milk). This recipe makes about 15 to 18 good-sized bisuits. If you are serving these with a soup or stew, they are really nice with a bit of cayenne pepper added with the dry ingredients. Gives them a bit of a bite. I hope you enjoy them.

      Wow, great recipe Gwen. The biscuits were perfect, crispy on the outside and nice and tender on the inside, just the way we love them. Quick and easy to make with ingredients always found in the pantry. Made as written but used butter instead of margarine. I made 1/3 of the recipe, made them rather large and got 3 big and beautiful flavorful biscuits. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe which we enjoyed with Seafood Chowder for a very tasty meal.

      This is the recipe that I have been looking for since I lost my recipe box over 15 years ago. They are just like the ones my mother made when I was growing up. Thank you so much for having it in Loving Life Nana
