I did not enjoy these biscuits. They were remarkably flavorless and neither moist nor fluffy in the least. I have had success with other biscuit recipes but would not make this one again.

Delicious. I love this biscuit so much. The best I have ever had.

This is one of the best recipes I have ever tried! I made them for breakfast one morning and I swear, my husband and I almost ate the whole batch by ourselves! Superb!!

Really, really good. Great just out of the oven and delicious the next day. A rave review!

These biscuits are delicious and light. I add some chocolate chips and I found the chocolate flavor goes really well with the cinnamon. They are really easy and quick to make. Thank you Jannifer!
