Better Biscuit Challenge

I got a new cookbook for Christmas - Baking: From My Kitchen to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.  It is chockfull of great recipes and mouth-watering pictures.  I started going through it, marking the pages of recipes I would like to try with post-it notes.  Well, after about 10 pages I gave up, as I was marking every page!  I probably would have gone through a whole tablet of post-it notes by the end of this substantial book!  So last night for a fun dinner, I decided to try three biscuit recipes out of it - Basic Biscuits (with milk), Buttermilk Biscuits, and Sweet Cream Biscuits.  I cooked some bacon and scrambled some eggs, and along with some butter, Sweet Plum Butter and Strawberry Rhubarb Butter, our biscuit taste-testing supper commenced.  All three were very good, but we all agreed that the Sweet Cream Biscuits were our favorites.  One thing I loved about the recipes is how they can be frozen - now I have a dozen biscuits to take out in a snap and throw them in the oven.
