  • Reviews

  • “These were very good and easy to throw together. Like one of the other reviewers, I made 1/2 recipe, but kept a full cup of cheese. Very good and we’ll be making these again!”

  • “Very good!!I forgot to add the butter after I had ‘rolled out’ the biscuit dough but still added the butter and the biscuits turned out great!!Absolutely full of flavor!!Oh yes, I lowered the temperature to 425 and they only took 12 minutes to back.Thanks for posting!!”

  • “This sounds grat my kid is going to use it for 4-H”

  • “This recipe was pretty good.My only complaint would be that they were a bit hard.My hubby loved them.Thanks for sharing!”

  • “I’m withholding a rating at this moment because I think there may be an error in it but am looking for some input.I cooked this exactly as posted and when i went to check biscuits at 26 mins they were already burning!!So either the time is wrong or the temp is wrong.I’m leaning toward the temp being wrong.Any feedback is welcome from some that have successfully cooked these.”

  • “My DD likes a packaged brand biscuit mix and these are so much better! Thank you for posting.”

  • “These were incredible!I made them to go along with a grilled salmon recipe (Honey Hoisin BBQ Salmon #41142).The only change I made was that I was cutting the recipe in half as there were only four of us, but I kept the cheddar to 1 cup.Unbelievable!I made four good sized biscuits and there wasn’t a morsel left!Thank you for sharing this recipe.It was so easy to whip together I know I’ll be making these many times over!LA :-)”
