You are probably wondering where my awsome little intro is right? Well sometimes I like to throw you guys for a  little loop! Keep you on your toes so to say! I know I know I'm a pain in the ass! But, I do it so well! Moving onto more important matters such as.....FOOD!!!!!

The recipe is pretty self explanatory so I don't think we really need to go further into that other then the fact this is my FAVORITE EASY biscuit recipe! Thank you Kraft for putting this together! Now you are probably looking at the picture that has strawberries in it and going...

"Dottie...what is THAT suppose to be?!"

What you should be saying is, "What sort of Deliciousness did you come up with this time!?" Lol!!!!

In truth this was great and actually a little on the healthy side. I know right...healthy? No way! The idea of it is simple and easy to make.

Make the dough for the biscuits as stated above without the cheese.
Simply pull the dough out into 9 balls set aside
Pull out a frying pan get it nice and hot!
Flatten out each ball in your hand.
Think of this as making pancakes with a thick batter....or even mud pies!!! Yeess the mud pies from when we were kids! -Pat pat smush smush- until you have a nice flat "cake" in your hand!
Slap it onto the hot frying pan. You want it a light brown on each side. Just like a pancake.
Pull it off and set it on a plate.

Slice up some strawberries....do this before cooking the biscuits.
Put a few on each "cake" drizzle honey over it all and enjoy it!
Best enjoyed hot off the frying pan!

Simplicity is key to good food. If you have to much on any one dish you lose the focus of the dish. Keep this in mind as you play around with this recipe.
-try adding herbs for a savory bread
-chocolate syrup with fruit as well as any other syrup! (Strawberry, caramel)
-different cheeses

Good luck my dears in your cooking/baking adventure!
