Best biscuit recipe EVER!!! So easy and quick. Definitely a keeper! Thank you!
These turn out perfect every time! Just love them!
As others said, this is a "tea biscuit" It has a light texture and is especially delicious with jelly. Be sure to make this nice and thick-mine rose up and looked great
I have been looking for years for the perfect tea biscuit. My looking is finally over!! These biscuits turned out light and fluffy and were so simple to make.
