"I've made these biscuits several times and love them. I sprinkle on extra grated cheddar cheese and use fresh chives. Quick to make and even the scraps I re-roll are tender. Delicious served split and warm from the oven & served with butter."

"These were very good! I didn't have buttermilk so I warmed one cup of milk and stirred in 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice and allowed it to thicken for a few minutes before adding. I also did not have any chives so I used a good teaspoon of minced garlic, a teaspoon of basil and a teaspoon of dried minced onion. That combination and the cup of cheddar was a winning combo. Will be making these again!"

"You can make these with Bisquick as well. I usually make these when we have fish. I add garlic. Gives them a great taste."

"I loved these biscuits a lot! Very flavorful. I could eat the whole pan. Didn't change a thing. You'd think I really knew how to cook with these."

"These were really good but I did use milk instead of buttermilk and 11/2 tsp. dried chives instead of fresh."

"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!"

"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!"
