Thanks for this recipe! My family requested biscuits with dinner and I had nothing. Found your recipe and whipped it up very quickly at the last minute using fresh whole milk from the dairy farm. They turned out great and my family loved them. :) We added extra butter to them as we ate them with dinner. Will make them again!!!!
These are wonderful biscuits. I just put mine on a baking sheet instead of using the muffin tin. Quick and simple to make.
