Made these for an evening snack today. Thanks for the recipe, I'll make the herb biscuits next time. I like the softness of these biscuits when they come out of the oven, they resemble lovely sponge and cotton dumplings:)

I've made the herbed biscuit version of these several times, but I use 2 cups whole wheat flour instead of part wheat and part white. I also just "drop them" instead of actually cutting them out. They go great as a side dish with a little butter on them. Very easy.

I make these biscuits for my family at least twice a week. Being a southern girl no longer living in the south I really enjoy these as a guiltless pleasure. I use whole wheat pastry flour and I think it makes them a bit lighter. Thank you for the recipe!
