“Soft, buttery, and flavorful. I started with another recipe, but the dough ended up a bit sticky for what I was looking for. I made a few changes, adding more flour and such, but after you make so many changes to a recipe it really isn't the same recipe. So, rather than leaving a review for the previous recipe, I'm entering my own. Note: I did not have regular milk on hand, so I used powdered in mine; Regular milk will work fine.”
12 Biscuits
