I like this recipe. But, you have to be able to tweak things! Gosh how we are creatures of instant gratification, aren't we? LOL. So, half the salt and milk, and double the soda and mayo. If too dry add a half teaspoon of water until it comes together, if it's sticky, it's too wet. And, measure everything!! Nothing heaping! 3x the recipe for a family of 4+. You can roll and cut this, drop it, just make sure of three things, blend it VERY well, let it rest, covered, room temp for at least 30 mins, and bake for 21 mins. :)
I followed the recipe, exactly, and found there wasn't enough moisture. So I added 3 tbsp of milk. Was enough to have at least a sticky "dough". They puff up nicely but taste awful, far too salty. My little boy, who normally loves salty things and bread of any sort, would not eat them....not too sure what to do ?
After reading some of the other reviews I decided to do these as drop biscuits and replaced the salt with all purpose seasoning. Didn't have milk, but evaporated milk seemed to work fine. As expected, they're definitely too dense to be rolls, but they make nice soft biscuits, and they're good with some cheddar sprinkled on top. Oh, and I greased my pan with olive oil, but I don't know how much that affected the taste.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I grew up in a family of great cooks - my Mom, my aunts & great-aunts, my grandmothers - all were shining examples, not only of great cooks, but of wonderful women to learn from and emulate. As the oldest granddaughter on both sides of the family, I had a lot of opportunity to watch and learn, and I consider any cooking "talent" I have today to be a result of "on-the-job-training" received at my Mom's and grandmothers' sides. As the oldest of seven children, we have a large, extended family and lots of great potluck dinners. We get together for each person's birthday to cook and eat and visit (don't forget the cake & ice cream!) There are several dishes that my family asks me to make: King Ranch Chicken, Fruity Chicken Salad, Homemade Macaroni & Cheese. But the one I am most proud of is my original recipe for Cheesy Chicken Squash Chowder. I recently put together a 36-page book of our Family Recipes, as handed down through the generations. I really want to preserve our family's great cooking traditions for my kids and grandkids, and believe this book helps do that.
