"Very good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2012

"These biscuits were not only easy to make but also delicious. I added Old Bay seasoning to my butter mixture as well as in the biscuit batter."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 16, 2012

"Love these...the only things that I did differently were to use 2 Tablespoon cornstarch and add in enough flour to make 1 cups worth (in place of 1 cup cake flour) and I did double the amount of butter topping that you brush on at the end (I ran out!). Otherwise great!"

"I made a mini-mini version of these morsels as an appetizer and they almost evaporated from the tray - guests devoured them. I used a melon scoop for the size, and that was perfect."
