Great basic recipe for biscuits! They come out flakey, soft and crunchy with a lovely plain biscuit taste. I found your husbands directions to be very clear and spot on. I made half the recipe using half whole spelt flour and reducing the butter a tad. They still came out very light and yummy! I reduced the oven temp to 375?F, but other than that stuck to your husbands recipe and loved it. Ill make these again for sure!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a real keeper with us, Ilysse!
