This recipe is more about the technique than the ingredients. I've added a bit more description since the first review. Making biscuits in a skillet rather than the oven is something I picked up from Joy of Cooking. It's a great alternative when you just don't want to heat up the kitchen by turning on the oven. Any rolled biscuit dough will do. NOTE: The texture may be a bit different when the biscuits are made on the stovetop, sometimes mine are a bit more dense than when baked, but they taste really good. I'm including the buttermilk biscuit recipe from Joy of Cooking, which is also wonderful and tender when rolled and baked. Yield is approximate, depending on the recipe you end up using.
