I made these biscuits because of a craving, and I was so disappointed! Was to sticky to roll, so I dropped them on the cookie sheet and they came out flat! I even tried putting them in a cupcake pan so they'd hold, and they were still a flop. Would not make this again.
My family loved these biscuits. I followed the directions exactly and they were perfect. They were easy to roll out and were tender and golden brown when done. Now I have to make them again. Some peple said they were drop biscuits. Theyre not. The dough is sticky but needs to be. Once you you add flour to the table before rolling it out it comes out perfect. Its the way it should be. Thanks for the recipe !
