Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
*Best biscuit recipe ever. I got this recipe from the cooks at Milton Elementary School. They used to make biscuits from this recipe in very large quantities for school lunch. Shirley Coffin (head cook) pulled this from her head when I asked her to give it to me for a “normal size serving”.
