For the past couple weeks my husband has been asking that I make biscuits for dinner. I was dreading, dreading, dreading this and put it off for a few weeks, until the requests became relentless. My mother in law had a recipe that I’d seen her whip together in record time so I thought perhaps, I could maybe do it in an hour. Well, I was so excited when these were ready to pop in the oven in 15 minutes flat! It was THAT quick and easy.
