Biscuits for 2

 Biscuits for 2
I created this recipe in a larger quantity to enter in the Kentucky State Fair. It won first place! Since biscuits are best fresh out of the oven, I sized my recipe down to yield four—perfect for two. I make them whenever biscuits fit into the menu. —Bessie Hulett, Shively, Kentucky
