    Bunlady's Note:

    My mom made these when I was growing up by just throwing everything into a bowl with no measuring. We liked them so much that we all needed the recipe so after several tries this is her recipe and they are great. Very delicate biscuit, do not roll with rolling pin just flour board and use hands to press dough out about 1 inch thick and then cut .

      I've been deliberating for almost a week if I should try this recipe, as I'm used to popping a can of biscuit, placing them on a sheet and they're perfect every time. I tried it this morning as it seemed super easy (even for me) and I was a bit disappointed. They didn't raises (maybe because I opened the oven while they were baking) and they looked like oatmeal cookies!!!!. However they were soft enough to enjoy. I used butter instead of shortening, maybe thats why, but thx anyway.
