  1. I had drop biscuits lol I added a bit more flour and kinda kneaded it . I thought it was because I halved the recipe. They were very good and I will make them again.Hubby liked them very much. Made for world tour 8


  2. This is the first time I've made biscuits that didn't have the texture of hockey pucks! I did need to add 1/2 cup of flour to get the dough to a workable state; and then I didn't roll them out, just dropped spoonfuls on a baking sheet. They were light, crumbly, and delicious. Thank you so much for a recipe that I can finally be proud to serve :) Made for ZWT8


  3. These turned out so fabulously.... moist, crispy, broke open perfectly to add butter and then delve into... the chives , I added were fresh from my garden and just made them taste all that much better... will most definitely make again... my husband is still talking about them... says they are better then any restaurant he has ever had them at...??

  4. Wow, this recipe makes the best biscuits. We loved them, they were perfect, crunchy and crispy on the outside; soft and tender inside. Great flavor and texture. I really loved the addition of the chives. Thank you for the legacy of your lovely recipes. You will always be missed my friend. Made with love for Cook a thon.

  5. This is my first time making biscuits with eggs in them. I liked the texture the eggs gave them. I ended up making drop biscuits and I definitely need to try them again so I can make pretty cut out biscuits. Made with love for Susie's cook-a-thon.
