"These are very similar to Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits but a lot better than the recipes that start with Bisquick, in my opinion. The kids adore them."

"Wow! These are amazing I made 50 biscuits. I am giving some to friends and family. I will definitely be making these again. I added a cup of chopped ham. It really was a great addition. Marg, another great recipe! Thank you so much."
"Wow! I thought I had a great recipe for buscuits...but mine doesn't compare! Thanks for sharing the recipe to these scrumptious morsels. My kids couldn't get enough of them and my DH was very impressed! Note that I changed out the shortening for butter as I'm not a fan of shortening. As well the bake time seemed a bit off, perhaps its my oven but they seemed to have need a bit more time perhaps closer to 15 minutes."
"Excellent! Light, fluffy and delish, thanks for sharing. Like another reviewer, I also skipped step 6 and baked at 400 for 10 minutes. Yum!"
"Incredible recipe! I made these and wrapped them around the little morning brakfast sausages and then baked! They were sooo good. Thank you for sharing. This recipe is a definite keeper."
"Perfectly delicious! I omitted the sugar, doubled the garlic powder, and used butter instead of shortening. (I did not do step 6.) Baked at 400 for 10 minutes, they were light and fluffy! Yum! And such a quick recipe!"
"I wish I could give these 10 stars! They were so good and I hate to admit it, but I ate three! They were super easy to mix up and bake. When the came out of the oven they were soft and light and very moist! I will never buy the packaged mix again! I did not have any cream of tartar so I did as another reviewer suggested and added an extra teaspoon of baking powder and a half teaspoon of baking soda. I read many reviews before I made them and lots of reviewers stated that they should have made a double batch, so I did! Which I am so glad I did!! Now we have extra to eat tonight!! Yum-yum!! Thanks for such an awesome recipe!!"
"I was glad to find this recipe that did not use Bisquick, since I never have it on hand. Very good, next time I will double or triple the recipe to freeze and have on hand :)"
"Very delicious! Made these at the last minute for dinner. I usually make one that calls for Bisquick, of which I had none, so I decided to see if I could find a scratch recipe. Yours was the first one to pop up on the search, so I went with it. The only changes were to increase the salt to 1/2 tsp. and the cheese to 1/2 cup. I also added a pinch of dried parsley, crushed between my fingers, to the butter that gets brushed on at the finish--it just looks pretty! They turned out perfect and delicious. Dough consistency was just right, baking time was accurate for the recipe yeild. The only things I might change next time would be to eliminate or reduce the sugar because while it wasn't bad, I could detect a bit of a sweet taste that seemed odd for a savory biscuit and I would increase the amount of the butter that gets brushed on after baking to 3 Tbsp. because it was hardly enough. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Best biscuit recipe I've ever made!!!"
"Nice & simple! I'm trading out my old drop biscuit recipe for this one. I didn't follow the last step & instead put a lil shredded cheese on top of the biscuits before baking. I also used margarine when I cut it into the dry ingredients, because I didn't have any shortening on hand. I also added some parsley flakes to the mix. I appreciate the fact that this recipe doesn't call for Bisquick like many of the cheddar biscuit recipes. Thanks a bunch for a great recipe!"
"These are pretty good, but 1/2 cup milk is way too much. Dough wouldn't come together until I added more flour. Once baked, they turned out ok. I would make them again, maybe with some herbs for additional flavor."
"Delicious. A very light, fluffy biscuit with a rich cheese and garlic taste. I doubled the batch and they were still eaten in 2 sittings. I used minced garlic in place of the powder since I LOVE garlic. Easy to put together and ready in a snap. Will use this recipe again for sure."
"These turned out pretty good. I have never bought a box of Bisquick and never plan to. I want to make them again, when I do I think I'll substitute real butter for the shortening as I think it was missing the buttery flavor. Likewise, I'll double the garlic as my DH stated he couldn't taste it at all and missed it. The prep, texture and baking times were right on, I ended up with 9 medium sized biscuits, just enough to go with our Chicken Pot Pie tonight for dinner. Thanks for sharing."
"Fantastic! Ultra-fluffy and flavorful. Going into my 'definite keepers' folder for sure."
""Yummy, excellent!" raves 8 year old Joel. He can eat 3 or 4 of these dreamy biscuits in one sitting, which leaves just enough for the rest of us. Little Danielle (not quite 2) already has a taste for them too. Easy to make, and way, way worth the effort. We double the cheddar cheese, and also dump in a good amount of Parmesan. I'm beginning to salivate as I write this. You get the idea."
"I only got 8 small biscuits out of this recipe. I thought they could use more salt and more garlic powder. Other than that they were light and fluffy."
"I have a feeling this recipe failed because of a mistake on my part or bad ingredients....
I am sad to say that these biscuits, although super easy and quick, turned out HORRIBLE. They looked delicious and I followed the recipe exactly (apart from using a pastry blender to blend shortening). At first bite, they had good flavor, but after a few seconds of chewing a terrible taste took over. I can't even describe it really. My best guess is one of my ingredients was off. I was really looking forward to trying this recipe out, and will try it again, especially since so many others got rave results! I won't give up!"
"Very, very yummy and took no time at all. I think 25 minutes tops was the bake and prep time!"
"Nice biscuits but if I make them again, I'll omit the sugar. They were just too sweet and whilst I like sweet/savoury things on occasion, these were really sweet to me. They didn't get gobbled up either which is unusual in my house. They turned out to be sort of a cross between a biscuit and a scone. (I am aware of the slightly different terminology between the US and Australia in terms of biscuits, scones, cookies etc.) I'm not wild about the half-biscuit and half-scone texture. I think I prefer normal cheese scones or cheese biscuits rather than a mishmash.
I've never used Bisquick and don't know if we even have it in Australia but honestly, who would bother trying to take a shortcut with Bisquick because these are really easy and quick to make."
"Awesome biscuits to go with just about any savory meal. Thank you so much for posting a recipe that didn't start with Bisquick!!!"
