Are they muffins or biscuits?? Only 5 ingredients, one bowl and a muffin pan. What could be easier? These muffins taste exactly like heavenly, light, baking powder biscuits. They are sinfully rich and oh, so delicious! So much easier than messing up your kitchen with rolling pins and flour allover the counter. Tip: These brown better without using paper liners.

Good, my family loves it (prob because it's so much less healthy than what I'm usually giving them). I agree that it was too sweet; I think all that butter does it, because it's still sweet after cutting it down to a tsp or two. Nice consistency, not too dry. They are quick and easy, so that's nice too.

Too much sugar and butter. I made these to put under gravy and they totally threw the balance off and stole the show, in a bad way to me. Biscuits shoudn't be this sweet. Also, only about 50% of them came out of the muffin pan in one piece due to having too much butter. Thanks for posting!

I used my food processor instead of mixer and it was a breeze. They turned out wonderfully, I didn't want them too sweet so I halved the sugar and it still turned out fluffy and wonderful. Thanks!
