These biscuits are easy to do and always come out perfect.

Top Review by Brenda.

My DH also made these for dinner. They were very, very good! He was so proud of himself. The biscuits were light on the inside and lightly crisp on the outside. They got a tiny bit crisp on the bottom, but not burnt. I had a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter and we got 10 biscuits out of this recipe. We will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing. *Made for PAC Spring 2008*
