I don't know what it is about biscuits, but I can only seem to make drop biscuits. So when I read the reviews from people saying it was the first time they ever made biscuits and how great they turned out, I thought that maybe this was the recipe for me. Unfortunately, my biscuit making track record remains unchanged. They ended up being dog biscuits :0( but he loved them!!
First time making biscuits, and they were a big hit with the pickiest kids ever! Thank you for sharing a wonderful recipe
First time I've EVER made biscuits because I always thought it was really hard. This was EASY and my toddler even helped. We used heart, star and flower cutters to give them fun shapes. A little salty but I used Kosher salt so maybe that was it. I probably rolled/slapped them too thin but otherwise I think we did the recipe justice ;). Thanks!
