These biscuits are not only simple, but are light and not too dry...exceptional!

These popped out of the pan nicely; even out of heart shaped muffin tins but, the flavor was dull. The texture was good but they tasted like Bisquick. Not particularly better with butter or gravy. Very surprising, actually, since they looked so good. I followed the recipe and am an avid cook. Alas, I will need to find a better recipe.

Great for brunch or dinner!

These were WONDERFUL and so easy to make. I did not add the salt because there is plenty in the Cheddar cheese. I rolled them out to about 1/2" and used a biscuit cutter and was able to get 9 biscuits. For a change of pace, I will substitute the green bell pepper with a can of chopped green chilies, just for a spicier biscuit, but they are perfect the way they are! Thanks for agreat recipe, Nell!

Pretty good. I had to add an extra tablespoon of milk, elevation propbably. Omitted peppers and pimnto, although I do think it would be good. Added 1 tsp garlic. Nice and light. Next time I am going to roast a head of garlic and add that with a few minced pickled Japeleno's. Yum, thanks for the recipe!

Of course I had to leave out the green peppers and pimentos,kids won't eat the biscuits with that in there.I added extra cheese and I think crumbled bacon would be tasty in there.We made the potatoe soup V with the biscuits and everything was delicious.I give these biscuits a thumbs up.

Good standard cheese biscuits. Fast and yeast free. Thanks for the recipe!

Worked great for a non-bread baker (= I added 1 clove minced garlic and some finely chopped shallot (instead of the bell pepper and pimento.), 3/4 c grated parm, and used 3/4 c of a cheddar jack mix. I used a fork to cut in my butter flavored Crisco. I just wish I had some butter on hand - I want melty butter on my warm biscuit (=
