I made these the other night, they were quick and easy. I also used instead of regular salt garlic salt. I also added a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. My husband really enjoyed these. I also just made them as drop biscuits as a reviewer suggested below and they turned out perfectly.

Used butter and increased the amount of cheese to ~6oz (sharp cheddar!). I bake at 425 for 12-13 min. These vanish so quickly at any meal we make these for, our go to recipe. Everyone LOVES them.

This recipe turned out perfect. I must admit I have difficulties with biscuits so I was prepared for these to have 'something wrong' with them but no such problem. They even looked just like the picture! Thank you, I have finally found biscuits that turn out wonderful for me.

Good, easy but needs a bit more taste. Nice if in a hurry.

These taste great, but based on the previous review I didn't even try to roll and cut them. I too just dropped by the spoonful and baked.

These were great! I couldn't get them to roll up, so I just kind of mounded them on the cookie sheet. I will make these again!
