"think I would try this recipe with self rising flour without all the extra ingred.just add some onion powder or finely chopped fresh onion and a small amount of finely grated cheese."

"These were just average for me. Would almost rather use a canned biscuit instead."

"Had to add an extra cup of flour because the 'dough' was so wet you could not handle it, let alone try to cut out biscuits. The amount of cheese in the dough gave them a weird gooey middle and they really didn't have any taste to speak of."

"Even for a not so great biscuit maker, these were fabulous! Served them with soup, everyone loved them and they were really easy!"
