"This is from an old booklet put out by the Walla Walla Gardeners Association. Walla Walla is in SW Washington state, where the sweetest onions outside of Vidalia, GA are grown! (how's that for diplomacy!) Any "sweet" onion will do if you can't get Walla Wallas or Vidalias."

These biscuits are packed with wonderful onion flavour! I did let the onion cooking get away from me and they caramelized a wee bit. Just added more flavour. We both enjoyed them with soup. Another keeper Mike. Thanks for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
