"THE BREAD at this meal sometimes varied, but we loved Mother's cheese biscuits best. Although the biscuit bowl was always filled to the top, there never seemed to be enough. The cheese gives these biscuits an unforgettable flavor, and buttermilk makes them especially light."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 24, 2014

"Used butter and increased the amount of cheese to ~6oz (sharp cheddar!). I bake at 425 for 12-13 min. These vanish so quickly at any meal we make these for, our go to recipe. Everyone LOVES them."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2011

"This recipe turned out perfect. I must admit I have difficulties with biscuits so I was prepared for these to have 'something wrong' with them but no such problem. They even looked just like the picture! Thank you, I have finally found biscuits that turn out wonderful for me."

"Good, easy but needs a bit more taste. Nice if in a hurry."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2010

"These taste great, but based on the previous review I didn't even try to roll and cut them. I too just dropped by the spoonful and baked."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2008

"These were great! I couldn't get them to roll up, so I just kind of mounded them on the cookie sheet. I will make these again!"
