    These were very easy to make and very good. I will probably make them a bit smaller next time as the biscuit size was very generous; good for a ham sandwich but a lot for a side starch. We froze the left-over biscuits and they toast nicely.

    Tried this recipe and was so pleased w/ the results that I automatically triple the ingredients for each batch.
