"My husband, Ken, and I like these rich, rugged, melt-in-your mouth biscuits with any meal," says Nancy Zimmerman (right with Ken) from Cape May Court House, New Jersey. "They're so easy to make since you don't have to knead them or cut them out."
Honey lends just a hint of sweetness to these light and tender dinner biscuits from Donna Jeffers of Petersburg, West Virginia (with her husband, Paul, right). "Our friend Joan gave us this recipe, so when my husband or I make them, we always call them Joan's Biscuits," Donna relates.
“My husband and I try to eat in a healthful way, decreasing fat and calories wherever possible," writes Carol Braly of South Fork, Colorado. "These homemade biscuits are one of our favorite weekend breakfasts.”
My biscuits won the division Best Quick Bread at my county fair. One of the judges liked it so much, she asked for the recipe! These buttery, savory biscuits go with just about anything.—Tall Pines Farm, Gloria Jarrett, Loveland, Ohio
"I USUALLY used a glass or baking powder can lid as a cutter so the biscuits would be bigger than average size...and I always baked some extras to send home with the kids. They liked to split them and fill them with cheese or peanut butter and strawberry jam."
Many people —especially children—don't care for fruitcake, so I came up with this sweet biscuit recipe. A few years ago these strips earned high honors in a recipe contest sponsored by a local newspaper.
