First review on Allrecipes, and I'm very excited to be reviewing Chef John! The toasting of the butter does add a little something - rustic country flavor perhaps, but nutty. I enjoyed making this recipe with both my family and was even simple enough for an after school program that I teach at. I would have liked more color on the biscuit, but any longer in the oven would have burned the bottoms. Overall it was a treat, and I'm happy that everyone loved them. - Tiffani
