I used Greek yogurt, and I only had a 5.3oz container, so I made up the volume difference with some sour cream. I used a cookie scoop to portion, and next time I'd probably not. It made them a little more smooth-topped and a tiny bit compacted on the interior. They'd also be great with orange zest/juice.

I love this recipe. Not too sweet.

These are great, my famiy loves them. Best served warm, but a few seconds in the microwave does the job. That is if you have any leftovers. They're a taste of summer!

Excellent and easy! I also only had 5.3 oz. lemon yogurt, so I added half of a 5.3 oz container of plain nonfat yogurt. Not a problem. Also, I had Lemon Curd on hand, so I used that instead of making a glaze. I like that these are lower in fat and calories than similar muffins and scone recipes. I'll make them again!

I never had a blueberry biscuit before today, even though we have loads of blueberries in New England. I'm always looking for different blueberry recipes and, having made this one today, I can honestly say it's a keeper. It was easy to make and absolutely delicious! I only had one 5.3-oz. container of lemon yogurt, so to make a full cup, I added part of a same-size container of key lime yogurt and it still came out very well, not affecting the lemon taste in the least, little bit. I'm recommending this recipe to everyone.

Delicious! I had to add 1/4 c. Sour cream because our yogurt only comes in a 6 oz. Size. Better than the scones I usually make. This is a keeper!

Absolutely fabulous. And so very easy! My only problem: How do I keep them from getting soggy the second day? I've made them three times and I'm planning to make them again tomorrow. SO very good.

I tried this recipe and loved it - have made it twice now. Second time I used my silicon muffin pan so I didn't need those cupcake papers. Wonderful - I added an A on my copy to remind myself it was GREAT.

These were really good and quick to make. The few we had left over were just as good a day later.
