This just didn't work for me at ALL. I followed the recipe exactly. I think there was too much milk or not enough flour. it was almost impossible to knead. I got so frustrated with it, I just spooned it out and slapped it on a cookie sheet. Maybe its my inexperience with biscuits but this recipe just made me mad. On a good note, it smells wonderful and its really sweet. Just needs some tweaking.
