Touch of Honey Biscuits

Honey lends just a hint of sweetness to these light and tender dinner biscuits from Donna Jeffers of Petersburg, West Virginia (with her husband, Paul, right). "Our friend Joan gave us this recipe, so when my husband or I make them, we always call them Joan's Biscuits," Donna relates.

    I'm not good with bread...but these were easy and flaky, even for me. I wish I had doubled the recipe. Will definitely be making these again!!
