      Marvelous biscuits. Easy to make. Cream keeps it moist & chives add to the favor. If the dough is sticky do not be afraid to add flour as needed. It will not affect the end result. I used it to as a topper to my "chicken Pot Pie". ENJOY

      Excellant chive biscuits Juenessa, simply delicious. Thank you for sharing this great recipe with all of us. I enjoyed these big, very tender, flavorful biscuits so much. The outside of the biscuit is crisp while the inside is soft. I will be making these often, they are quick and easy to make. I got to use fresh chives for this, what a treat....Kudos Kato
