These are delicious and great way to change up regular biscuits. I was a little heavy handed with the cheese, so ended up with 3/4 to 1 cup of cheese probably. No other changes, very good. A keeper recipe for sure.

These are perfect! I used just a little extra flour and corn meal and milk so I could do a slight knead. Timing and proportions are just right.

I thought they were pretty boring. Dense and crumbly. Like cornbread. I've come to think that a biscuit is not a biscuit without buttermilk.

These were perfect. Not dry like other biscuit recipes. They were not that cheesy so you could definitely increase the cheddar to a full cup like review cmgentzel suggested. Also, I ran out of milk so I used Vanilla Almond milk instead. So good. Really easy to make. Didn't bake longer than 12 mins. I'll make these all the time.

I made this recipe for the first time and we loved them!!! Although I increased the cheese to 1 cup. My family loved them and I will definitely make them again.
