"I added more cinnamon because we love the taste of cinnamon. I baked this in a 9 x 9 because it didn't seem like enough batter to me. Then I had to bake it a tad longer. Excellent recipe."

"How do you get the ad off on the rt.side of the recipe? Wastes a lot of my printer colors & I sure don't need the ad. Can someone do something about this? Other web sites have a box to check off so that the ad does not print off with the recipe. Hope you can do the same. Thanks"

"Delicous! I, too, used a sugar substitute (Truvia). Next time I will spread out the dropped biscuits a bit as they didn't spread during baking. Good recipe!"
