    These were delicious. Made last minute to go with a beef stew & you'd think it took me a couple of hours to put together. 10 mins at most. Light & fluffy. I did put wax paper on the cookie cheese to protect them from over Browning. (No parchment paper) The recipe is everything it says it is.

    Made a batch of these a few weeks ago. They turned out so deliciously cheesy and flakey that I made 2 batches today. Great with soups, stews and chowders. Made my biscuits using butter instead of shortening and I also used a larger biscuit cutter to make slightly larger biscuits. Using my cutter I usually get 12-13 biscuits. They are so good.

    Butter instead of shortening in all 3 batches. ( I didn't have shortening)

    Great recipe but suggest you cut in shortening then add cheese. Either way yummie also have used it for raisin tea biscuit adding a little sugar and using butter instead of shortening
