Another tender, family pleasing biscuit! Gone are the days I make biscuits with a pastry cutter. So time consuming. They turn out just as wonderful using my food processor. Enjoy!

    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, sprinkling with enough flour that it won't stick as you fold the dough over itself 2 or 3 times. Just fold and push with heel of hands 3 times. With your hands, pat out dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut out dough using a 3 inch cutter. Don't twist cutter!
