QNS...you're a step ahead if me. I also use self rising flour! I use the recipe on the bag...adding butter and milk. This isn't bisquick. The secret I learned from my Mom is to stir it as little as possible. I add more flour than QNS so I can pat it out. Use a rolling pin if you like.
I forgot the walnut sized hunk of butter in the date candy. In hindsight, I think my Mom used cream rather than milk. I'll try that next time.
Finished cutting out the BB and most of them started assembling. Fun thinking of all of you. Have a wonderful evening and tomorrow with your loved ones!
