The minute I set my eyes upon this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try and so glad I did! They are fantastic! I'm going to serve them an hour from now with our evening pot of hot tea and I can predict, everyone's going to ask for another batch! The only little thing I didn't have was cinnamon-sugar, and I substituted it with light brown sugar, worked well! These indeed look like they've come straight out of a gourmet bakery! Thanks so much, Inez, for sharing the recipe.

Oh MizzNezz these are sinful! I made them for a brunch meeting and served alongside fresh fruit. They were so quick to whip up, smelled great while baking, and looked beautiful out of the oven. I'd never made a drop biscuit before and I love the irregular shapes. Thanks for a recipe I'll use again and again.

These were amazing! I doubled the cinnamon because I really like it, but other than that followed exactly. So good (and so easy!), I had to make them again the next day! Thanks for posting!
