    This is the easiest and tastiest biscuit recipe ever, can't go wrong. I have made this dozens of times and like the other reviewers, I halve the recipe which still makes at least 50 biscuits. Very yummy and the possibilities for variations are endless!!! 😍  -  04 Feb 2014


    Altered ingredient amounts. Added choc bits and halved the recipe.  -  04 Jan 2010


    I halved the recipe, and put in choc chips. I thought it was an easy, simple recipe which came out very tasty, and I am sure they wont last in my house before tonight!  -  04 Jan 2010
