      So the two that made and liked this recipe thought a pound of yeast for 12 biscuits was just about right - sure we don't need to put in a little extra - just to make them REALLY rise.

      These were the best biscuits I believe I have eaten. I have tried for years to make biscuits and failed miserably. With this recipe, I no longer have to hang my head in shame in regards to the biscuits I've made! These were wonderful and will become our staple.

      I love this recipe. I do change one thing. I only put 2 teaspoons sugar, as my family does not like them sweet. These can also be frozen and you take out what you need.
