My favorite biscuit by my sweet grandmother. These are delicious. I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon and butter inside when they are still hot. YUM YUM

These biscuits had a great texture. We ate them plain at dinner and they were good, but they were better for breakfast when we heated them back up and served them with butter and cinnamon-sugar as suggested! The recipe didn't specify as to rolling and cutting with a biscuit cutter or dropping, so I dropped them onto a baking stone and they turned out fine!
