MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2014

Delicious! I forgot to add the chives and cheddar before the buttermilk so I kneaded it in. I was afraid it would make it too tough, but it was just fine. The batter did seem dry; I had to knead it to get it to come together. I didn't have a biscuit cutter at the time so I cut it into squares. We loved them, would definitely make again.

My daughter made these last night, and we thought they were terrific! We did not have any chives and just left that out. My husband ate one plain and one with apple jelly, and he liked it both ways.

These were pretty good, although I don't know how often I'll make them. I thought they could maybe use some garlic or something to give them a bit more flavor. But they looked beautiful!

MY REVIEW

These remind me of biscuits from one of our favorite eateries. They are quick to put together and use staple ingredients that I usually have on hand, but make any meal special!

I really enjoyed these, although there wasn't enough liquid so I added more buttermilk. We also didn't have chives so I used dried minced onion and fresh parsley.
