mistaken biscuits

Recipe by

I named these "Mistaken Biscuits" because I needed to make biscuits to go with a stew. I did not have baking powder or cream of tarter and barely had enough milk in the house to do most recipes. After some research, i took a basic biscuit recipe and used the lemon juice to create the acid needed to extend the leavening through the baking process. During the making, I forgot to add the butter (which wasn't really needed after all) and discovered they are more like rolls instead of the drop biscuits they look like. Hence the name "Mistaken Biscuits".
