This recipe comes from a very good friend of my aunt's in West Virginia. Her name was Mildred Reynolds and she was a phenomenal cook AND baker. I remember having these biscuits with some warmed canned peaches, which Mrs. Reynolds had also put up herself. I had made this recipe many years ago and the biscuits were so good my mother even noted (with a star) "delicious" next to the recipe. I'm glad to have found the recipe again and even made a batch to go with some fried chicken I made for dinner -- and they still are delicious!!! Unfortunately, Mrs. Reynolds has since passed away but I'm thankful to still have access to her best recipes. Hope you like these tasty biscuits just as much as we do.
