easy biscuits for two

Recipe by

La Quinta, CA

Biscuits are best made fresh....and right out of the oven. Most recipes call for 2 cups flour and make 12 good sized biscuits. I cook for only 2 persons on a regular basis, so I made this recipe to be just right for a Morning Breakfast for two. Although we mostly serve biscuits for a morning offering,.....really,......they are good with any meal.
