"Just okay."

"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."
