"I substituted Gluten-free flour mix recipe from TOH.com for the 1/2 unbleached all-purpose flour. I drizzled honey on them while hot just before serving. The biscuits were delicious; and just the right amount for my husband and I."
"This made very tender biscuits. I did increase the baking powder to a rounded teaspoon, since other reviewers mentioned having trouble getting them to rise, and I patted them out a little thicker than 1/2". I love being able to easily mix up just enough for the two of us!"
"I doubled the recipe and it made the perfect amount. I didn't get much lift though. I think I would add a little more baking powder next time to see if that would make them fluffier."
"i have made these 4 times now in the past 2 days. they've all tasted good, but only my 4th batch actually rose. i also added a tbsp of honey to the recipe. i had to pat these out to almost an inch thickness to get them to look more like biscuits and not so much like cookies. but either way, i love the flavor :) now that i've got the recipe figured out (for my preference, at least) i'll definitely make these over and over!"
"This was so easy to make! I like how the outside is lightly crisp and the inside soft. Delicious!"
