Found this recipe on AR submitted by "Kitten", after searching for a baking powder biscuit that didn't taste like baking powder. These are perfect, light and really yummy, especially warm.They rise nice and have little or no baking powder taste.It's the only biscuit recipe I use, works great for shortcake too
