"THESE BISCUITS are made from a recipe that's been in our family for years. They're simple to make and smell so good when baking! The wonderful aroma takes me back to those days when Mom made this meal—it's like I'm there in our family's kitchen again, with her busy at the stove."

Simple to make and quite tasty. My 4 and 8 year old loved them.

These were tasty biscuits! Part way through baking, I brushed a mixture of melted butter, parsley flakes, garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese on top. Delicious. I will definitely be making these again.
