Grandma's Shortcake Drop Biscuits

Norma DeRemer


During the Summer months, grandma would make these bicuits and put all kinds of berries on them with whipped cream. As a kid I thought they were the greatest. Well here I am older now and making my own.
I garnish mine with a piece of my chocolate mint leaves I have in my spice garden.
