These biscuits taste buttery and are simple to make. Cut them into jack-o'-lantern shapes for autumn but different shapes for other seasons. They are especially delicious when eaten warm! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"I've made these biscuits twice. DELICIOUS! I recommend using a larger biscuit cutter (about 3"). I am planning on making these for my Thanksgiving dinner. Nothing can top the wholesome ingredients of these biscuits and I am so happy to be rediscovering "homemade"!"
