    marilia lins's Note:

    Love this recipe because it's quick and no fuss; there is no need to roll dough. Don't expect a smooth finishing like regular biscuits. Delicious with just butter or butter and jam. Mother always makes it for an afternoon snack.

      Excellent biscuit! I used soy milk, and instead of fennel seed used some fresh dill weed. I made the biscuits a little larger than the 2" balls, and they were perfect for breakfast with some herbed butter spread on them. Also, at 400 degrees it was a bit too high and I found the edges burning before the whole thing was fully baked, so I turned it down to 375 and it was perfect! Thanks for a wonderful and versatile recipe!

      Used whole wheat flour, 1 cup of buttermilk, subbed the fennel for dried chives and added some grated cheddar, paprika, and garlic powder! Easy and yum!!!

      A quick fluffy biscuit, soft on the inside with some crunch outside, and the flavor of licorice.
