These biscuits are easy to whip together and bake up nice. I found this recipe in a Taste of Home book. They are great with ham or turkey dinners. Also good with chili or other favorite soups.

These turned out terrific. I cut the recipe in half, and made them in the food processor. They were light and fluffy. Served with a pork, hominy, and tomatillo stew.

Super simple and tasty. I used my food processor to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. The texture was so light, unlike any drop biscuit I had made before. I will definitely make these again.

There's nothing that I enjoy more than simple, TASTY recipes that only require ingredients I have on hand but still turn out fantastic! I made these for;topicseen#msg44408 to go with cold gazpacho soup and they smelled amazing and tasted even better, if that's possible! Superb recipe find!
