There is seriously nothing yummier than warm-out-of-the-oven biscuits with butter and homemade jam (Strawberry-lime-Vanilla or Blood Orange Marmalade are perfect). As a child I spent many hours in my grandmother’s kitchen making these biscuits and I’d have to say it was through this recipe that my passion for baking was ignited.
This is such a simple recipe and really perfect for kids to learn to do on their own. My grandmother’s version is always made with vegetable shortening (impossible to find in Italy) but I have made them with butter as well. They aren’t quite as light and airy but tasty just the same.
