I believe that the perfect biscuits should be quick, easy, and hassle free, and I want them to be just as good served at room temperature as they are fresh from the oven. This recipe uses only one bowl; you do not need to pull out your rolling pin or your food processor. By using frozen butter and a cheese grater you get those coveted buttery flakes with little effort.
