      These are wonderful. I am southern and am embarassed to say that every time I have ever tried to make buscuits they came out like little rocks. They could have easily been considered lethal weapons. Thank you so much for posting. Very easy and very good.

      These biscuits were very good, cheap and easy. I followed the recipe exactly and turned out good. I made the biscuits about 3 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick. I was able to get about 9 biscuits.
