These were not good. The batter was pourable, no way I could have kneaded it. I had to add almost a cup more flour to get them to a kneadable consistency. They were dry and flavorless then. I triple checked my ingredient amounts and they were spot on to the recipe. Not sure what happened but these were not good at all.

I made this with self rising flour and added one cup of freshly grated extra sharp cheddar cheese. It made a dozen regular sized biscuits. My family absolutely loved them!! They are definitely part of the regular rotation now! Next time I'm going to add chives!
