Sugar Crusted Biscuit Puffs
Another recipe I found in my old yellow recipe box I've had since the 70's. I didn't look in that for a lot of years after I got busy with raising kids and other important things. But now it's like finding a little treasure with recipes from my mother who's not here anymore. This recipe is on an old index card that is yellowed. It's in my Mom's handwriting. She used to write down recipes she liked, and mail them to me after I got married.
These are a sweet treat that would be perfect on a holiday or party table.
