Great flavor. However, this dough was so wet I couldn't roll it and would have had to add a lot more flour. Was pressed for time so decided to make drop biscuits, but even for drop biscuits they needed more flour. Next time I'd start with 1 cup yogurt and go from there. They are delicious and so easy, I will try these again as noted. Thanks!

Mmm! I scaled this down and used it as a topping for a basil parmesan chicken pot pie by just rolling it out into a circle and putting it on top of the pie plate. It was very flavorful and different. p.s. I substituted light sour cream for the yogurt and olive oil for the canola oil and it came out great.

These biscuits are awesome! They are very pretty,and gourmet tasting ! This is a was so quick and easy to make to! I didn't roll them out and cut with a cutter though, I just made them by dropping small rounded amounts on a greased cookie sheet and they came out perfect.Thanks so much!
