Reviews for Lemon Tea Biscuits
"I actually made these biscuits for strawberry shortcake and they worked great! I actually didn't taste as much lemon in the biscuits as I thought I would. I image if I made the butter the flavor would pop out more. Overall very satisfied...this receipt will definitely stay in my book."
