Our Family Biscuits

These are the most light, and taste biscuits I have ever eaten. Everyone loves them and they are great on top of one of our favorite dishes, Chicken n Biscuits. The secret is in the cream of tarter. I think I got this recipe from my late mother in law, Jean. She was a true country cook!
