I just took a pan of these biscuits out of the oven ummm. I made them savory and they are flaky, tender and really good, I rated them low because this is the first time I have attempted to make biscuits. I am pleased at how easy it was. I wiil use this recipe until I find a better one. But I don't think I'll be looking very hard.
