Mmmmm! These are the real deal. The recipe comes straight out of DOLLY'S DIXIE FIXIN'S. I found a typo in this recipe IN THE BOOK! I am going to contact them to make sure I fixed the recipe properly. I made a batch according to the instructions below and it was close, so I will update as soon as I get ahold of the publishers. These biscuits are DARN GOOD!
