READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Marie

These have to be the easiest biscuits ever! Only one rising, then bake. Prep time does not include rising time. Yield is approximate.

Can't believe I'm lucky enough to be the first to rate this great recipe. Made this for our morning biscuits and with one rise it was perfect, mixed them up and let them rise while I was enjoying that first cup of coffee and waiting for everyone else to get up, then popped them in the oven and out came these perfect, light biscuits. The only thing I did differant was to cut the recipe in half as there's only two of us and they came out great. Directions are easy to follow and we couldn't be happier with them and will be making again.
