'Seasoned with rosemary, these light and tender biscuits are extra special,' says Jacqueline Graves of Lawrenceville, Georgia. 'And with just four ingredients, they're a snap to make.'

These were excellent! I did use regular Bisquick, cream cheese, and milk because I didn't have the low-fat varieties. I didn't use all 1/2 cup milk, as the dough was pulling away from the side of the bowl without all of it. I don't think you need to knead it (haha) 10 times or whatever is called for since doing so usually makes for a tough biscuit. I didn't knead the dough at all. Also, pay attention to the 6-inch-square size. It's a lot smaller than you might imagine. I actually marked mine out on my cutting board, but if I hadn't I would have undoubtedly made the square bigger than 6-inch square. Also, 2 tsps of fresh rosemary equals 1 tsp dried rosemary, although if you're a lover of rosemary, I think you could safely add more. I will add more next time I make these and I WILL be making these again. ***UPDATE: I have also made these as drop biscuits without the cream cheese. Mix 2 1/4 cups baking mix with about 2/3 cups milk then add 2 tsps (or more, depending on your preference) fresh rosemary. Don't knead the dough. (That's my favorite part since I don't like to knead biscuits since it often makes them hard.) Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees. Fresh rosemary adds a softer flavor which I prefer, but both fresh and dried are very good. Read More

These biscuits are incredibly tasty and so easy to make! I've made them 2x now in the last week and want them again. I followed the recipe but found you need to increase the herbs. I also used an egg wash for a little extra color. One hint: Put your cream cheese in the freezer for ~1 hour prior to cutting. It is far less sticky and it helps chill your ingredients. It is important to have everything cold so you get the nice flaky texture. Oh, and it works great if you make 4 biscuits (instead of the 8) and slice them in half for sandwiches - Delicious!

I used full-fat Bisquick, cream cheese and 1/2 and 1/2 (I'm bad). Also substituted 1/3 as much dried rosemary instead of fresh. These are amazing! Fluffy and very mildly herbal. Thanks for posting! Read More

Way to put fresh bread on the table in a flash! I'm not generally a baking mix user (bought the stuff for another recipe I lost interest in making) but I could get in the habit of it for recipes like this. I used full-fat products but made no other changes. I had it mixed up, kneaded, rolled out (I just patted it with my hands), cut and placed on the cookie sheet well before my oven had even preheated. Light and tender, not to mention good looking. Perfect with our soup and salad dinner. Read More

These were bland the first day. Very good the second (after mircowaving). Must be the herb flavor released the 2nd day. Read More

A great basic biscuits recipe. My boyfriend can't taste rosemary (no sense of smell), so I swapped out the rosemary for some parmesan cheese, which was tasty. Next time I might even try some cheddar. Very easy, very adaptable. Also, the amount in this recipe makes four largeish biscuits for me; I think cutting into eight would be a bit small. Read More

I just made these tonight and they were fantastic! They are fluffy on the inside and have a nice golden crust on the outside. I will definitely be adding these to my regular recipe file! Read More

These were easy and tasty. I made my own biscuit mix (Bisquick = ick!!). I brushed them with olive oil as soon as they came out of the oven. Yum! I tried freezing the cream cheese as was suggested by the reviewer above, but don't recommend it since it took a long time to cut it in to the flour mixture. I'll use this recipe again when I need a quick bread item to accompany dinner. Read More
