Sweet cream biscuits were the first kind I mastered. Since the ingredients are so simple, I can scale the recipe up or down. In fact, I've actually memorized it! —Helen Nelander, Boulder Creek, California

"I had to use a little over 1 cup of cream, but that was probably because of our weather.....they were delicious! I love the nuttiness the parmesan cheese adds!"

"This is a redo recipe for me. I love homemade biscuits. I used melted butter instead of the cream as I had none on hand and was anxious to try this recipe out. I will make another bath using the cream. I love the idea of putting these on top of a pot pie. Perfect. Its such and easy put together recipe. The cheese was a real nice addition. I too may have over worked the dough as mine were slightly dry as well.

"They were very good, very easy. I put half on a turkey pot pie and they raised beautifully, cooked the other half in a enamelled pie plate, great flavour but not as puffy. They separated just like a biscuit should. I would make these again. A great recipe to do with the kids. Janet. VFE"

"quick and easy enough. Mine didn't rise as high as I like them but that could depend on many variables. Flavor was good. Next time I'll brush with olive oil and sprinkle garlic bread seasoning on top before baking for added flavor."

"The flavor was delicious but mine were also a bit dry. I may have overworked the dough but I had some trouble getting the dough to come together. I'd definitely make them again, if only to figure out what I did wrong."

"Made these for company today but for some reason they were almost gone when I went to set the table - husband discovered them. I did sprinkle a bit of dill on top I am a total dill freak, they were so easy I will make them again and again and again."

"Very tasty biscuits. I was a little heavy handed with the Parmesan so mine were a little bit dry but otherwise great taste. We had some with dinner last night and finished them for breakfast this morning."
