Delicious Biscuits!, Member theauthenticnut

These were very flaky and easy to make, I did however make a few changes. #1 I did not sift the flour before measuring. #2 I did not knead the dough, I find the less biscuit dough is handled, the flakier they are. #3 My biscuits were done baking in 12 minutes, so the baking time should be changed to 12-15 minutes. Overall good recipe and I would make these again! : )
