Nee's Angel Biscuits

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

I would have to say that these biscuits are neck and neck with my daddy's biscuit recipe. My grandmother started making these when I was about 10 and I think that is where I gained that first 10 extra pounds....not that I blame her...but dang these are hard to stop eating! THIS DOUGH CAN BE KEPT IN THE REFRIGERATOR FOR UP TO ONE WEEK

I can't believe I haven't reviewed these yet! I've been making them about once a month now (gotta watch that weight!!! ;) They are so good and remind me of my Great- Grandma's biscuits. YUMMMMM....thanks for posting this Sherrybeth! It's so worth the effort--especially if you were raised on canned or bisquick biscuits like my husband. Nothing wrong with that, but he had NO idea!
