"These biscuits have an amazing aroma and taste that will turn any grump into a jolly lad! They are crispy on the outside, yet soft and puffy in the center. They freeze well too, for making large batches. This recipe is best when hand made, so try not to be tempted by your mixers. Trust me, it will pay off in the end. Buy block cheese and grate it by hand for best quality. I use a medium size grate. I do NOT recommend using fine grated cheeses." — audiospirit

1 1/2 teaspoons
shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
shredded white Cheddar cheese
Such an easy recipe, and they came out great. I didn't have any white cheese, so I just used shredded Sharp cheese. I ended up baking 20 minutes.
We didn't like these at all. They were very chewy, and the insides took longer to cook than the outside, making for a crunchy exterior. And the taste just wasn't quite "right", though I can't put my finger on what I didn't like about it. We won't be making these again.
exactly as described: crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. delicious. i think mine took close to 15 minutes to cook.
Turned out very good, especially warm from the oven
This is the best biscuit recipe I've ever tried -- and believe me, I've tried a bunch! I use half cake flour and half bread flour, which make the biscuits lighter and fluffier. I've also played around with various cheeses and herbs with great success. It's an easy and versatile recipe, and quite a crowd pleaser!
I made only two small changes and that was using buttermilk instead of 2% milk and I added a teaspoon of garlic powder. Instead of making drop biscuits, I shaped the dough into a round circle and cut the dough into triangles, like scones. Awesome biscuits--very tasty! GREAT with barbeque chicken and pasta salad.
These are excellent and easy. I don't like thyme, so I added a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. My whole family LOVED them.
These were awesome! I followed the recipe as directed and they tasted much like those at a certain popular seafood restaurant! They are good as they are and also very good with a little garlic butter brushed on the top.
