Found this years ago in a cookbook. Have given the recipe out more then I can count... always light and fluffy.

This is the first biscuit recipe I've tried where they actually were edible, and they rose! I didn't have cream of tartar, so went without, and used Smart Milk 0% fat milk, and they were excellent - very light, fluffy, and very good taste. I wasn't sure what size cutter to use, so I used a 2" diameter one, and ended up with about a dozen biscuits. Kept everything as cold as possible, and beat the eggs and milk together until well-blended. Delicious - thanks, Podapo!
