I had some trouble with this recipe. The dough was very wet, almost like batter. I had to add quite a bit of flour. Then, the biscuits did not rise as expected (brand new baking powder). My guess is with the addition of the flour I should have increased the leavening ingredients. I also noticed there was no salt listed on the ingredient list. I don't know if this was an error or not, but there was obviously something missing in the flavor. One final note, I found the parsley/honey mix an odd flavor. All in all, these were edible, I am even saving the leftovers for tomorrow, but I will not make again.

These were a bit hit with my family...they freeze well, too! I used cilantro instead of parsley.
