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!

These were great. I will deff make them again. I made them to small but next time I will know. Also add some garlic powder for some cheesy garlic buns. Only thing is....they are not so good left over. Little tough the next day. Awesome straight out of the oven though

These are fantastic! I made these one Sunday night and my kids had them gone the very next night. I didn't have any poppy seeds, but the flavor was still great. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. Thank you for posting.
