Author Notes

Surely, ramps are new to me. But, I love their earthiness a lot. And, I call them a little attention seeking because they are available only during spring time and for a short time. I usually made biscuits once in while with chives. So, just replaced the recipe with ramps. Hope you all like it. —PistachioDoughnut
