Reviews for Makeover Cheddar Biscuits
"I don't know if I did something wrong, or what, but thought I followed the directions exactly. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner with friends and relatives (my daughter-in-law loves the Red Lobster biscuits), and they were like hockey pucks! Very hard and dry, and they didn't taste at all like the light and fluffy Red Lobster biscuits. I wished I had bought the mix instead. Maybe they would have turned out better. Anyway, no one liked them and I ended up throwing all of them away. I won't bother making again."
"Much, much more "authentic" than the copycat biscuits made with a boxed baking mix. I added Italian seasoning to the parsley. Very good!"
"Wow, these were fantastic! Unfortunately, that means no leftovers!The changes I made: I didn't have cake flour, so I used 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons of plain flour; my buttermilk was 2% milk with a tablespoon of vinegar in it. And I grated the 3 tablespoons of butter into the flour mixture.Yum!"
"I made these for several family get togethers, everyone loved them."
"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."
"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."
"I just made these, and they are amazing! super simple and delicious!"
"I did make mine with cake flour and was pleased with the results. I did the lemon juice in the milk to make buttermilk trick and I was asked for the recipe so I think it was a success. It's hard not to over mix trying to get all the flour in I'll have to work on that."
