"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 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."

"These were so good....light and fluffy. Thought I was at that famous restaurant. Didn't have any cake just added a teaspoon of corn starch to A P flour. Delicious."
