Great biscuits - easy to make. I used fresh chives and 1 % milk and they turned out fine. I love that there is no kneading the dough - just drop.
I also made these biscuits to serve with soup. Nice and tasty biscuits and very easy to make. Thanks mydesigirl.
Made these biscuits to accompany a soup last night and they were terrific. I halved the recipe and it worked just fine. Thanks for a great recipe. This is the first time I have made biscuits and was very pleased with the outcome.
