Melting Moments Biscuit Recipe

These Melting Moment Biscuits are an old favorite. This recipe is from an old Womens’ Magazine and is dated February 11, 1963. Although there will be many Melting Moment recipes on the internet I doubt that one like this will be easily found. These biscuits are not shaped like the traditional round biscuit. These Melting Moments are shaped like daisies. Because the recipe is old all of the most of the quantities are in ounces.
