Recipe Comments & Reviews

This was a last minute decision to make for dinner and I'm just so pleased they were easy and delicious.
OMG,would give 10 stars if possible. Found this website and recipe by accident. Read the recipe,decided it looked good and immediately made them. Am sitting here eating one as I type this review. I am not a fan of baking powder biscuits but am a big fan of lemon pepper. The only change I made was to use 2 tsp of lemon pepper. Am off to make another batch to give to a neighbour. This recipe is a keeper.
