    IF made by my formula here..you will DEFINATELY
    save Money, time, gas and NUTRITION.
    Lower in fat and sodium, as well as other additives and chemicals..
    Also might sub some of the white flour with wheat?
    You think possible?

    Thanks so much for sharing. I have been looking for a good biscuit recipe. I am so tired of buying canned biscuits to bake and discovering afterwards I got rolls instead. Great way to ruin planned strawberry shortcake. Going to check out more of your recipes.
