I honestly though these were abit dry, but the kids scarfed them down, which is all that matters as a mom to picky kids!!!

I think a tablespoon of baking powder is too much. Mine came out tasting soapy. Not sure if I would try these again but if I did I might halve the baking powder.

Loved these! Don't know why others thought they were dry, although I guess I didn't really measure the cheese and just kind of grated into the bowl until it looked like there was enough :) They're a beautiful compliment to the potato soup I made! Thanks for posting!
