"I thought they were pretty boring. Dense and crumbly. Like cornbread. I've come to think that a biscuit is not a biscuit without buttermilk."

"These were perfect. Not dry like other biscuit recipes. They were not that cheesy so you could definitely increase the cheddar to a full cup like review cmgentzel suggested. Also, I ran out of milk so I used Vanilla Almond milk instead. So good. Really easy to make. Didn't bake longer than 12 mins. I'll make these all the time."
