I'm a big fan of homemade biscuits but not the rolling and cutting that goes with them. The drop biscuit method solves everything. —Christina Addison, Blanchester, OH

"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."

"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!"
