"I make this often when company comes over. They look at it, and are so impressed-it looks like I slaved away in the kitchen. (Not about to tell them how easy it was...) Taste is awesome."

"We thought this was really good and very rich, but I used coconut cream instead of the heavy whipping cream as I am lactose intolerant. I also didn't see the need to brush the tops with the Tablespoon of butter as they were very greasy without it and the sugar stuck just fine."

"this recipe only made six for me (using their 1/3 cup measurement for each biscuit) but that was plenty. packed lots of flavor!"
