Awesome, these herbed biscuits are delicious and addictive, I just can't stop eating them, I used the sage mixed with green onions, lemon zest, and also used more garlic, I like garlicky taste. I also used 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry and 1/2 all purpose, and no need to say more, they are delicious.

What is a 15*10 inch rectangle. Does this mean 15" X 10"?

Yes, it means 15" X 10" (15-inch by 10-inch).

Happy Baking :)
