This was the first time that I have ever included an egg as one of the ingredients for biscuits. I don't recall ever adding cream of tarter, either. Also, we usually prefer no sugar added to the biscuit dough. However, these biscuits were really tender and tasty, just the right thing to slit and slip some ham inside! We especially liked that whole wheat flour was included as an ingredient.
The number made from this recipe depends, of course, on the size of your biscuit cutter. The size I used was the two-inch diameter one, and I had to double the recipe.
I have had this recipe in my file for a very long time, and I cannot remember the source. I think it was included in some promotional materials in an attempt to convince me I needed to purchase another cookbook!:-) Just the thing I DO NOT need!:-)
Thank you very much for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
