My family and I love these biscuits. They have a sweet yet savory flavor. I've been making them since the recipe was first printed and always have good results. It is very important not to overwork this dough, and when you roll it out, make sure that the dough is 1/2 an inch thick.
You will need to roll the dough out twice to be able to make eight round biscuits. Handle the dough as little as possible to keep it from becoming too tough.
