these biscuits are so good ! they remind me of the buttery biscuits at red lobster. the texture and consistency are very similar, although the taste is a little bit different.

what a great recipe ! pretty easy to make and so delicious. i forgot to brush the tops of the biscuits with butter; i’ll have to remember to do that next time.

i will definitely have to make these again sometime.
