I had drop biscuits lol I added a bit more flour and kinda kneaded it . I thought it was because I halved the recipe. They were very good and I will make them again.Hubby liked them very much. Made for world tour 8
This is the first time I've made biscuits that didn't have the texture of hockey pucks! I did need to add 1/2 cup of flour to get the dough to a workable state; and then I didn't roll them out, just dropped spoonfuls on a baking sheet. They were light, crumbly, and delicious. Thank you so much for a recipe that I can finally be proud to serve :) Made for ZWT8
This recipe I would use in a stew as a topping almost like a dumpling which is made with suiet. Without the savoury ingredients it is served with jam and cream, clotted if traditional, we call them scones.
