Reviews forZucchini & Cheese Drop Biscuits
"These are fabulous! I tasted them right after I made them, then ate 4 of them. I'll be making these a lot!"
"I have made these biscuits multiple times for a variety of occasions. Each time they are received very well. They are a part of breakfasts buffet and with soups. I make them smaller than the recipe calls for, so the recipe makes closer to 2 dozen or more. I recommend these whole heartedly."
"love these they are so moist and tasty."
"I absolutely love these biscuits! They are delicious served with Creamy White chili. Perfection on a plate."
"These are delightful---something different for a change. I brought them to a function and everyone wanted the recipe. They are at their best fresh out of the oven but still good the next day."
