You may want to make up a batch of the herb seasoning used in these biscuits to use in other stuff, we do! This seasoning is enough for 8 bathches of biscuits (each batch making 6 biscuits). It is really, really good on chicken, pork, beef and steamed veggies. This recipe was originally from Taste of Home. Contributed by: Jane Everett, in Pinehurst, North Carolina. We make these often, and quite enjoy them. I'm pretty sure that you'll like them as well as we do!
