Secret Trick 1860 Baking Powder Biscuits

"This great recipe comes from the book A Passion For Baking by Marcy Goldman.These come together so easily and are so tender.I also added about 1/2 cup chopped green onion. An added note in the book she says if you want to turn these into shortcake biscuits just increase the sugar to 1/3 cup and use 6 tbsp butter.I'm going to try that and add some raisins too to make raisin buns."
