    Marie's Note:

    Saw Giada Delaurentis make these on the Food Network and they look wonderful. Although they are called biscuits, they are baked in muffin tins and topped with sugar and sliced almonds.

      Nice texture, and easy to put together. I just dropped the dough by spoonsful onto a buttered cookie sheet, for a yield of about 24 smaller "biscuits" or tea cakes.

      Get rave reviews every time I make these. Have had many requests for the recipe also. They are moise and have a wonderful texture. The sugar and almonds on top not only add some crunch but make them look so pretty.
