Recipe by Juju Bee

I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe for a long time, and I came across this recipe. It is a copy cat recipe for Church's biscuits from I tried it out, and it was wonderful! My husband loved them too! You should try it for yourself.

I liked these! The texture was great. Very tender. Next time I make these, because I will absolutely make them again, I will use butter instead of shortening, I will increase the sugar by a teaspoon, and I will actually put the biscuits into the oven with some of the honey and butter mixture on them from the beginning and then brush them again after baking. Great recipe!
