One day I was just setting around the house thinking to myself "I would really love to start making homemade recipes of my own". That particular day I was craving biscuits so I thought why not start by making homemade biscuits. I gave it a shot and my biscuits were horrible. A couple of days later I thought I would give it another try and to my surprise they turned out perfect. I have been using this recipe every since. Enjoy!!! :)

I tried this recipe one night after finding tiny glass shards in my canned storebought biscuits. Disappointed in the mass manufacturing process of canned biscuits and the lack of quality control, I was determined to pave my way to newfound homemade biscuit making freedom. I followed this recipe and was super impressed with the results. They were delicious. They rose slightly in the oven but I made them kind of thin to begin with. Thanks for the great recipe. This is definitely worth whipping up as it will give you confidence and independence from storebought biscuits!
