"I have made these biscuits multiple times for a variety of occasions. Each time they are received very well. They are a part of breakfasts buffet and with soups. I make them smaller than the recipe calls for, so the recipe makes closer to 2 dozen or more. I recommend these whole heartedly."

"These are delightful---something different for a change. I brought them to a function and everyone wanted the recipe. They are at their best fresh out of the oven but still good the next day."
