Royal Canadian Legion...Ladies Auxiliary Cookbook recipe A biscuit, more like a scone. Light texture, and can add raisins if you like. I have made them with buttermilk or yogurt when I have no sour cream.A nice addition to any meal. They look delicious also.

Traveling and making a breakfast out of a single guy friends house, so had to make do with what he had and these were very forgiving. Tried to follow as close as possible but had no baking powder, so added a teaspoon of rapid rise yeast, did add shredded cheddar cheese to the mix. Even with these changes turned out light, fluffy and great taste, says a lot for this recipe
