I thought the batter part of this tasted great, but the biscuits seemed a bit out of place to me. So we ended up eating the cheese cake part and leaving the biscuit crust behind. But this could be from using Grands biscuits (which is all I had) and doubling the batter. So I will refrain from assigning a rating to the recipe.

I prefer a normal pie crust, but this recipe is easy and tastes very good. I've also made it with lemon extract as well as vanilla.
