Chive Biscuits

I like to serve these light moist biscuits with my soups, stews and roasts during fall and winter. Sometimes I substitute other herbs for a change.—Norma Erne, Albuquerque, New Mexico

    My husband and I really enjoyed these delicious biscuits! I substituted real butter instead of shortening and sour milk for the buttermilk..

    I used butter instead of shortening and sour milk instead of buttermilk. Very light and fluffy.

    Nice, easy biscuits that came out fluffy and moist with a delicate chive flavor. Really yummy! I didn't do the butter flavored Crisco, but used regular, and they were very nice still!
