    Very good, and yes similar in taste to RL. I did make a couple of changes. I added some garlic powder and a couple dashes of baking soda to the dry ingredients. I also needed to use @1/8 cup more flour. The dough was still really sticky but the biscuits rose nicely in the oven and had a pretty light consistency. Don't overmix or you will end up with hockey pucks! I used a 4 cheese mexican blend and it gave them a nice flavor. I will make these again and again-easy and great flavor. Thanks!  -  17 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    These were excellent. As an "avid baker" who has not been to culinary school but bakes my own breads everyday, the key to any biscuit recipe is not to over mix them, otherwise you get the glutens going and they will be dense and hard--just mix enough to blend the ingredients and don't over handle the dough. The only change I made was to add some more garlic and I use whatever cheeses I have available---they are always awesome! Thanks for the recipe! Oh, and if you use parchment paper on your pans, the biscuits won't stick!  -  21 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    These biscuits were woooonnnnnderfulllll!!!!! I added twice as much salt, a bit more cheese (two big handfuls of cheese, to be exact), and freshly ground pepper. Also, the cheese was a finely shredded Mexican cheese blend, not just cheddar. I think they'd be even better if you added some grated cheese, but also some small cubes of cheese so there'd be some really cheesy spots. I can't figure out though why you need a full 1/4 cup of butter to brush on top, I used less than half and the biscuits were still soaked!  -  08 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
