  • Quick and easy - not much of a mess to clean up - will definitely make again

  • YUM! Better than McDonalds but very very similar. Thanks Robbie!

  • This is a wonderful recipe, I got your book last year for Christmas and I LOVE it... the only thing I did differently is I rolled each biscuit through butter on both sides before I baked them... it made them extra yummy!!!

  • I tried the biscuits , and they are even better than McDonalds. Thanks so much.
