- This recipe is easily doubled. It also freezes well. You can use this as a base recipe for strawberry short cake, etc. If you so desire, you can use an artificial sweetner such as Splenda, Equal, etc. (use 1 to 2 packages, or to taste).
Also, if you desire a drop-style biscuit, increase liquid to 3/4 cup and drop by large spoonfuls onto baking sheet that has been sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray.
