Reviews for Easy Cheesy Biscuits
"These were good, but I expected a little more cheese flavor. Everyone did enjoy them, though. I left out the red pepper flakes, so maybe next time I will add them."
"These biscuits were delicious. It even works with gluten free flour. They are just a little more dense."
"Love these quick and tasty biscuits. They were very large, so next time I will make them a little smaller and decrease the baking time. The garlic flavor was just enough and the red pepper flakes did not make them "hot"... but only a slight taste of heat on occasional bites. This was good for my family."
"Great to make in a pinch!"
"Thanks, Christina, for sharing this delicious recipe. I cut the recipe in half and we enjoyed the biscuits last night."
"Loved these drop biscuits!! family just kept raving how good they where!!"
"As the author of this recipe says, I also don't enjoy the rolling that usually comes with homemade biscuits. This is a very tasty and easy drop biscuit recipe. They rise up nice and fluffy. I also loved the garlic component of them!"
