MY REVIEW

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.

It was the best shortcake recipe ever. I doubled it and baked in a 7x11" pan instead of the individual mounds. It required a bit longer to bake but was light and fluffy...much better than the Bisquick biscuit shortcakes. Well worth the wait and going into my favorites file.

This is great, but would be nice to see it slimed down in calories a bit
