NOTE: This recipe made me sixteen biscuits, after rolling out the first batch, I picked up the remaining cutouts and rolled it out again, don’t be wasting your dough and if you want to make more than 16 just double the recipe. Also you do notice that I did overcrowd my pan so don’t make that mistake and space them out in order to give them some breathing space.
