Karen, I have to thank you AGAIN for this recipe!! The morning after Thanksgiving, I made biscuits and gravy for breakfast. My MIL REVED and said I should open a restaurant! She loved them. I told her about you, and she said I need to make sure to stay on your good side...lol.

I do try to handle it as little as possible, but I'm always adding flour, or it ends up being a mesy blob and won't keep it's shape at all.

Made these again. It was only the second time. I made sure to touch them less. Awesome! We devoured them with a little butter and local honey on top! I had one after the kids went to bed for a "snack" too. YUM
I am so curious as to the cinnamon rolls from this. Ive made cinnamon rolls before, but not from a dough like this. I admit I am intimidated.

I made the cinnamon rolls from this, and they are great! Instead of cutting them into biscuits, just roll out a little thinner, spread with soft butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. Then roll, cut and bake. Really easy, and yummy! I made these for my DD6 when she had the flu, and it was the only thing she'd eat for a whole day.

Thanks. Cinnamon rolls sound so good right now. I usually make them for Christmas morning. So I need to give it a practice run asap.

They'd be great Christmas mornng, quick!

I'm trying to think of a quick Christmas morning breakfast also. We have to drive 2 hours to my MIL's, but I want a nice big breakfast at home first. But it has to be fast. I'm thinking maybe a breakfast casserole of some kind that I can put together the day before. But I've never made one before.

Ive always been nervous of a breakfast casserole too, lol.
you can always cook bacon or sausage ahead of time and then reheat too. Same thing with pancakes. And I've never done it, but dont people make a thing called "overnight french toast" that all you have to do is bake it when you get up? I love french toast but never have much success making it, lol.
