Now how much easier can it get ~ These biscuits came together in no time at all! I used a low-fat milk & mild cheddar! The 2 of us had these first with a cauliflower soup & mid-morning the next day with a chili (great both times) & they were gone in less than a 24-hour period! Will certainly make these again!
