They have the perfect soft and tender texture, they’re moist (one thing that often turns me away from biscuits is that they can be dry but these are anything but), and they have the perfect balance of flavors. Just be sure to serve them warm, it’s the only way to eat a biscuit in my opinion. Add them to your holiday menu, you won’t regret it!
