Yum! I made them as written - doubled the recipe. I cut them with a 1 1/2 inch cutter, because I like a tiny biscuit. They made 40, at this size, baked 13 minutes. I took them to a church dinner. Easy and delicious!

These were some of the best biscuits I've made. They are nice and flaky. The Parmesan makes this just the prefect combo of sweet and salty.

On a cold rainy day I made these. With a cup of herbal tea I enjoyed them. I agree with all the others who said they had to add some liquid to get them to form well. I was amazed on how much they raised up. I have had much trouble with biscuits in the past. These were very good although I think I needed to add a little more salt. Not sure I measured it correctly . All in all these are the best I have had lately.

I am somewhat biscuit-challenged but with this recipe that is over. Wow! So easy and absolutely delicious Nice and flaky. However, like the other reviewers, I had to add more cream. I used a 3-inch canning jar lid to make them a grand size. It made 7 large biscuits, along with cooking a dab longer. Since we had these for breakfast, I omitted the Parmesan cheese. I very highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor.

These little gems were tasty and came together quite easy. I also had to add more cream to bring the dough together. The flavor and texture was great. I have a tendency to roll my biscuits to thin, so I do need to try again for a thicker biscuit (they didn't rise much for me).

I made the biscuits as written, but just needed to add more cream for a total of 1 cup. They are easy peasy to make and really delicious to eat..Going to make them again, for breakfast and add crispy bacon and serve them with homemade peppered milk gravy or plain biscuits with sausage gravy..YUMMY!!

Everyone in my family loved these biscuits. I followed the recipe as written except for adding more cream. Like a few other reviewers, I needed more to make the dough come together. I ended up using just over 1 cup of cream. Other than that, I would say these were most definitely 5 star!

Very tasty, simple recipe. Will definitely be a go-to for us! I added pepper but otherwise followed recipe as written. They will be great with gravy and sausage next time!

I did use a little extra cream to make them come together. The dough was a little dry without it. They baked up nicely and were really tasty biscuits. I might try adding a little garlic powder next time and serve them with spaghetti. Will definitely make again. We just ate these with butter. Yum yum!

I found that I needed more than 3/4 cup cream-I'd used about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 of cream to hold dough together. I also did not work the dough too much and got 8 biscuits out of this recipe. I sampled 2 biscuits and they tasted very good! delowenstein, Taste of Home, Volunteer Field Editor
