Directions

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2014

I used this recipe for my 7th grade Home and Careers Biscuit lab. The kids moaned a little about using whole wheat flour, but after they were done baking, they couldn't get enough of them! They were simple and easy to make, very tender. I had them use frozen strawberries heated in a sauce pan with a little bit of sugar. They also really enjoyed that with homemade whipped cream! I will try these at home as well.
