    weck50's Note:

    I got this recipe from a neighbor-lady when I was a young farm wife on the plains of Kansas. It has never failed me, and is still one of my most requested recipes. I usually double it, and even triple it for big family breakfasts. I mix mine in a big wooden bowl.

      I've been making a lot of biscuit recipes trying to find that perfect, light biscuit and I've got to tell you this is right up there on the top of my list. Not only is it light and tasty, but simple too; what more could you want. I'm so lucky to be the first to find this gem.
