The dill weed in these lovely golden biscuits really comes through. My friends like them because they're fluffy, tender and delicious. I like them because they don't take as much time to make as yeast rolls. -Audrey Lockau, Kitchener, Ontario

"I loved the dill flavor and it paired well with Roasted Kielbasa and vegetables. That being said, my family was less thrilled with them. Super easy to make and would go great for a ladies luncheon."

"I really enjoyed these. As a side note, they were particularly good along side the Chunky Seafood Chowder which is another recipe on this website. Try it! You won't be disappointed!"
