I first received a sample of these light, wonderful biscuits, along with the recipe, from an elderly gentleman friend. I now bake them often as a Saturday-morning treat, served with butter and honey. They're perfect with sausage gravy, too! —Faye Hintz, Springfield, Missouri
These biscuits are a special treat with a ham dinner, but they're also delicious just by themselves. They're often requested by my five children and seven grandchildren. I've been enjoying them since the 1940's.

Chock-full of almonds, these biscuits are an updated version of a Southern classic. With their crunchy character, they always garnered praise from patrons at Dairy Hollow House, the inn I ran with my husband, Ned. The inn is now a non-profit retreat for writers. It provides them with the solitude they need to create.—Almond Board of California, x, California
When our granddaughter Amanda was younger, she wanted to cook every time she visited. These biscuits are nice for snacking with a glass of juice or milk or a cup of hot chocolate.—Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma
Back in the 1920's and '30's Mom always had something good for us to eat when we got home from school. Her wood range had an apron right by the firebox, and Mom often left a plate of these warm wonderful biscuits waiting for us. What a treat! —Mrs. India Thacker, Clifford, Virginia
