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!
