  • Very easy with great flavor! I make them and serve them with Bob Evans sausage gravy: my husband says he never needs to order biscuits and gravy when we're out for breakfast because these are so good. - 5/17/14

  • I always thought that you had to use shortening to make good biscuits, so I hadn't tried to make them myself until now. These biscuits are awesome! I will definitely make again. - 6/16/13

  • Great base for breakfast today for Father's Day. I made the dough and divided into 2 bowls. I made 4 pigs in a blanket using cooked sausage links and wrapping the dough. The other I mixed in cinnamon and sugar and dropped into 4 blobs on baking sheet. I made gravy and served with scrambled eggs.

  • I was looking for a quick, simple, healthy and tasty recipe. I must cook a quick breakfast several times a day. With this great recipe, I pop'em in the oven, cut the fruit, flip the bacon, scramble the eggs and have it all on the table in 15 minutes! (Cut in frozen Smart Balance and Drop) - 2/29/08
