Flaky inside, a little crunchy outside. Wonderful with lots of butter while still hot.

What's not to love about an easy biscuit recipe? These worked out great and rose up high and light. I consumed a month's worth of butter eating these darned biscuits hot but, what the heck? That's what a homemade biscuit is all about, right?
