This is an old family recipe from my grandmother. These are VERY easy and was the 1st recipe I ever made (at 5 years old). These turn out so light and fluffy, you won't believe it.

  5. Place into an ungreased pan and bake for 10-15 minutes until browned on top. (Check a middle one to be sure they are completely done)
  6. You now have a wonderful base for Sausage Gravy and Biscuits, GREAT for strawberry shortcake, biscuits with butter and honey....use your imagination!
