Hello friends! I’m back today with a very basic biscuit recipe, you can throw these together and have them in the oven in less than 10 minutes. You can make basic biscuits by themselves as a side for dinner, or drop them over a casserole, or eat them for breakfast as biscuits and gravy, or simply with butter and jam. You can always find a use for them!
