I learned many things in the six years I spent at Southern Living magazine. Making tender, flaky biscuits has to be one of the tastiest. They're easy to prepare and who wouldn't love to have these for breakfast?
While cornstarch may seem like an odd ingredient, since I don't use buttermilk or cream I needed something to help tenderize the biscuits. If you like the acidic twang that buttermilk gives, try adding 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar to the flour mixture.
