Quick to make! The flavor reminds me of biscuits from a particular Kentucky restaurant serving fried chicken.

Delicious and easy. I will be serving it with fresh strawberries with lemon and maple syrup.

I made these because my oven went out and I was looking for a way to cook biscuits until I got it repaired. These biscuits turned out a beautifully golden brown and they were flaky. I think I will use this recipe often even when my oven does work again.
