      OK so folks, just throw away all of your other biscuit recipe and use this one. My goodness these are awesome. I followed the recipe exactly and only added 1 tablespoon of sugar (personal preference). I also baked them at 425 for 15 minutes. Oh, don't forget brushing them with butter part. They came out golden, the crust has a slight crisp to it. The crumb is tender and moist. They just melt in your mouth. Can't you tell I love this recipe LOL. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

      I made these biscuits tonight and everyone said don't even try any other recipes, this is the one. To think it has taken 64 years to find the absolute best biscuit recipe. Your MIL had to be some awesome cook. Thanks a million for posting and sharing this delicious recipe with us.
