Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:
I had these for the first time at my sister-in-law's when I was staying with them as a teen. They are now a much loved tradition in my home too. Any time it snows, the kids beg me to make them. I've changed them just a bit by adding the nuts but they are good with or without them. For an Orange Cinnamon variation see Orange Cinnamon Biscuits.
