Recipe by Mysterygirl
I got this recipe in a church cookbook years ago and have been making them ever since. They are extremely tender with a flavor that no store bought biscuit could ever come up with. Makes breakfast or any meal special. (And they are so easy too)

Mysterygirl, these are Fab-u-lous!! I just finished one off and you can be sure I will be making these again. Very easy to put together. I was worried about the high heat, and they were very brown but very flaky and moist. Delicious with strawberry jam. I totally agree with Yooper. You have a winning recipe here. Thanks for posting.
