These biscuits are flaky and sensational in every bite.  I served them up at our Lake house along side dinner and everyone loved them.  My niece is a huge lover of bread, biscuits, and rolls and I new if they past her taste test they were a winner.  As soon as she reached for her second biscuit I new I had past the test.  You don’t have to serve them with just butter they could also be used for different variation of sliders or for a kid friendly peanut butter and jelly biscuit-which.
