READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by nesbitt929

These biscuits are so easy to make and taste really good. They were made by my gramma whenever we would show up on a week-end night to watch tv. When hot out of the oven, she would butter them and fill with one of her home-made jellies or jam. They were a great snack for us kids.

I love this recipe. They taste more like yeast rolls rather than biscuits.
