Shirley’s Homemade Biscuits

“These biscuits are originally from an old Betty Crocker cookbook that my mom had I think. They are really yummy, and especially good with butter and jelly on top, with a nice mug of hot chocolate! Mom used to fix these a lot on Sunday nights, after having a huge dinner. Just something to snack on with our hot chocolate… Fond memories for me for sure.. These are great for Strawberry Shortcake too!”
