"I substituted cardamom for the cinnamon and used orange marmalade in place of the strawberry preserves. They looked, smelled, and tasted wonderful. I will definitely make these again."

"My husband does not like buttermilk biscuits but ate four of these at one sitting. They are so easy and are great as snack or breakfast food -- best served right from the oven."
