    Simple, uncomplicated recipe sees you churning out biscuits in no time.  -  14 Dec 2008


    Wow! Half the butter though please! Way too much butter. I had to add several cups of flour which made them a bit chalky but still quite good.  -  14 Dec 2011


    i used half the quantity of ingredients just to try them and i still somehow got 12 biscuits (medium size). I had to leave them in the oven for 20 minutes in total and they were scrumptious!!!  -  12 Dec 2012
