Personal Notes:
My niece,Dawn, and I perfected this recipe during her visit to my house Thanksgiving 2006. We cooked biscuits everyday for four days until we were satisfied with the results. Her mother and the rest of my sisters thought they were the bomb.

BISCUIT CUTTER
I have tried commercial biscuit or cookie cutters but didn't like their results. My mother and grandmother used an empty vegetable can, with top removed with a can opener, to cut their biscuits. I now have two of them. One from a green bean can and the other from a tomato sauce can.
