These were tasty biscuits! Part way through baking, I brushed a mixture of melted butter, parsley flakes, garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese on top. Delicious. I will definitely be making these again.

I have the original Reminisce magazine recipe from 1992 and it is somewhat different from this webpage. The original recipe does NOT have sugar. It also asks for 2 tsps baking powder. Have not made these yet, but will follow the magazine version when I do.

These biscuits were awful! They had such a bland taste and I hardly got a dozen out of this recipe let alone 1 1/2 dozen. And they were nowhere near as thick as the photo shows. Never making these again.

I love the flaky texture of these biscuits. I brushed the tops of mine with real butter and put honey on them. I think they were really good!
