I just made a double batch of these - absolutely delicious!! I did use half cheddar cheese, and half parmesan, so it was extremely flavourful. I also used half cayenne and half dry mustard powder and also added some dried rosemary. Putting the logs into the freezer for 10 minutes after refridgerating helps it keep its shape. A note to any novice cooks - it is easiest to mix in the milk using a knife, and also to squash and shape the logs roughly before rolling smooth, as this helps get the air out of the mix (and stops it collapsing in spots). Leave a little room to spread too! I will be making these again soon - I think pistachios could go well in them too..

Tasty little bites of heaven. I shaped mine into a log and did slices instead of rolling and cutting and added maybe 1-2 tablespoons more of milk. I also used a chipotle chili powder and once cooked a smidge of fleur de sel on top. I just smeared a bit of butter on top. They were quick to toss together. Made for PAC Spring 2009 Definite keeper and going in my Faves CB 2009

Delicious! easy to make. I also rolled the dough into a log, popped it in the fridge for half an hour and cut into slices then cooked them. I am going to serve these with a cheese board along with a nice glass of wine!

FT, these are delectable morsels! I made them with the intention of serving with cocktails; HA! they won't make it that long. I took another reviewer's advice, and rolled in a log to chill, then sliced. My yield was 20, and they are so tasty, I'll certainly be sharing with friends! Thanks, FT, for making Everyday a Holiday!

DH and I enjoyed these biscuits. They are great cheesy,nutty biscuits with a little kick from the cayenne pepper. I served them with a light breakfast of scrambled eggs and juice. I even tried one with homemade pear preserves and enjoyed the sweetness along with the flavor of the biscuit. Great luncheon or brunch biscuit, especially if made in a smaller "party" size". I did use milk instead of beer, otherwise prepared as directed! Thanks French Tart!

Delicious. For me, who has no skill in anything to do with food, they were a little tricky, but they turned out rather well in the end. I'll make these again - thanks for posting!
