Lovely and extremely tender. I did the whole thing in the food processor, sotpping when the dough formed a ball. Works for me everytime.

These turned out wonderful the first time I made them. Easy to make, quick, moist and they rise so well in the oven. I think I will experiment a little to tweek a little more flavor into it, maybe make them onion or cheese biscuits. Thanks for the recipe!
