Kimi's notes for this recipe:
You will love these biscuits. They melt in your mouth and they are "sky high". Make sure your baking powder and cream of tartar are fresh. Use real butter and make sure your milk and butter are cold.
Make it Your Way...

KImi, You know what I learned while working yrs ago in a rest.
They make their dough, Then pat it in a pan,
and score the biscuits into squares,
Bake them,
and then break apart as needed to serve.
I wonder how this Idea would work for these??
