    Foodie Friend's Note:

    These are really good - but sometimes in my oven 15 minutes is not quite enough so watch closely to make sure they are not underdone and when adding a couple minutes make sure they don't become overdone.

      Great old-fashioned biscuits. I liked the technique of cutting them into squares and leaving them intact (not separating). I rolled mine out into more of a 7x7 inch square. I did have to bake mine about 7 minutes longer so they were cooked all the way through. My family oohhhed and aahhhhed as they ate this biscuits hot out of the oven. ~Made for Spring 2011 Pick a Chef~
