INDIANA—"When I think of food and summer, I think of our county fair in July. My three sons and I have competed in a lot of 4-H cooking contests. I enter 15 or more food items every year in the open show. "I've found Taste of Home to be a great source for prize winning recipes. My recipe for Sky-High Biscuits (below) never fails to win a ribbon. They're moist, high and flaky, with a wonderful wheat flavor." —Ruth Burrus, Zionsville

My son just made this recipe for our county fair and won reserve champion. He made it several times with just all purpose flour and with the wheat flour and each time the biscuits came out perfect. This is a fool proof recipe!!
