Reviews for Oatmeal Biscuits
"They are great! Had someone ask for the recipe once she tried them."
"Love these ! A little sweet, but not as sweet as a cookie, but rich and crumbly. I used butter as my shortening - yum."
"These biscuits were great! They were sweet like a cookie but flaky like a biscuit. My family loved them!"
