These biscuits turned out very light and fluffy but had very little flavor. I'm still searching for the perfect tea biscuit!
I used butter and 2 1/2 c. Flour, plus more for kneading but they came out great! My new favorite.
My only complaint is that each time I have made these I only get 8 biscuits instead of 12. I make sure the dough is rolled out to 3/4 inch thickness and I have a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. They are so good, just wish there were a few more!
So easy and they are yummy
