Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix all ingredients well. If dough seems dry, add a little bit extra milk until mixes well.
  3. Place dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet in biscuit shapes. My mother didn't even shape them; she would just put globs of dough down and they would be irregular shapes.
  4. Lightly dust flour on the top of the biscuits.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
