READY IN: 25mins

Grandma's recipe that everybody loves. Serve as dinner rolls as well as breakfast bisquits. Best served with raspberry jam! The dough can be kept in the refrigerator for a week!

In the South, we call these Angel Biscuits (maybe for their lightness?). My grandmother O. made the best and I am so happy to have this recipe. They remind me of her. Thanks for sharing!
