I liked these a lot! They came together quickly and easily and tasted very nice! I luv the combination of the carrot and cornflour as well as the herbs. I doubled the amount of carrots used and that way mine weren't dry at all. Also I left out the sugar due to previous reviews. These are very yummy hearty biscuits! Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, Sharon! I will definitely make them soon again, perhaps with some added cottage cheese in the batter.

These were wonderful with Recipe #279645. I used a mixture of Splenda and sugar and the only thing I might change would be to decrease the sweetness slightly. They browned nicely and very easy to put together.
