"I made a couple of modifications to this recipe. I had apple juice on hand and substituted that for the apple cider. I also added the cinnamon to the dry ingredients instead of sprinkling them on the biscuits. They tasted like apple pie!"

"Yummy! I made these into a more savoury biscuit to accompany Cider turkey soup; I omitted the cinnamon and instead stirred 1 Teas. dried Summer Savoury into the dry ingredients. Found these not to be as tender as biscuits that contain dairy, but tasty none the less! Will definitely make again."
