i have made these a couple times now and i always get rave reviews. though i dont make them a dessert. i just make the biscuits and serve them as just biscuits (so no sugar on top) with a meal. they have a great sour flavor and are very easy to make, just make sure you dont roll them out too thin. thanks, this is my 'go-to' biscuit recipe.
