Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Jeff's dad made these biscuits for Jeff's seven brothers and sisters when they were growing up. We have a picture of his father from years ago, in the kitchen making these and you would swear that it was Jeff. Jeff carried on his father's tradition and made the biscuits for our boys as they were growing up. Now he makes them for the Granddaughter's and he is known to at least one of them fondly as "Grandpa Biscuit".
