Tell us about your recipe
When my sons played and practiced sports, they were always starving, so I had to have dinner in a hurry. I found this recipe and modified it so that I could have quick and easy biscuits. I would spoon them out to rise when I got home from work and by the time I finished cooking meat, veggies and potatoes, they were ready to pop in the oven. We all loved anything with yeast and needless to say I got plenty of compliments. My sons are all out of high school now but when they are close by, I still bake them angel biscuits!
