Excellent ! I put everything but the zucchini and milk together ahead of time and set the bowl in a cool place. It took a minute to throw it all together when l was ready. They looked beautiful and they were excellent cold the following day. I will make these again. Janet VFE

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.

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.
