Easter Biscuits

Easter BiscuitsWell, it’s Easter weekend so I couldn’t resist baking some Easter Biscuits to have with our morning coffee.  Traditionally these are biscuits that would be given as gits on Easter Sunday.  These biscuits are as easy to whip together as something like a scone, and are delicious!  This recipe makes about 30 biscuits.
