The 3rd tablespoon of sugar gets mixed into the strawberries with the orange juice...see step 3 in the directions. Very quick and easy to mix up. Light and fluffy. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top.

only 1/2 cup milk should be used --- this is way to wet with one cup of milk also too much salt

Very good, but what is the 3rd Tblsp of sugar for?

I put some turbino sugar on top of the biscuits before baking.
