Oh, Bev, you really struck a chord here with me, I adore cheesey biscuits, and I adored these. Cheddar cheese isn't so strong in this country, so I used a mix of Cheddar and kashkaval, and it was delicious. I also cut them smaller, using a 1 inch round shot glass to cut the rounds. I dipped the whole round in the egg wash and dipped half in poppy seeds and half in sesame seeds. With a little dab of butter spread on them afterwards, these are cheesey heaven!
