One day I made my deer stew, about the only cooking I'm good at. I figured I would make some biscuits, usually I make corn bread from a recipe on a bag of Yellow Indian. I didn't have any on hand so I went to the web and started looking for something quick and easy that I had the ingredients for. Anyway I came across the recipe below. I've tried it several times now. The first time they were dry as sand in the desert and hard as bricks but I think that was because I made them too thin. The next few times they were edible but still hard and dry. Can anyone advise me on how to make them a little moist. I tried not cooking them as long but then the middle was doughy. Any help would be appreciated.
