How It Rated:

Prep Time: 5
This recipe was really quick and easy. Great for a quick breakfast on a rushed morning!

Cooking: 4
I don't know if it's the type of cookie sheet I used or the lard or neither but the bottoms were burnt. The cup had a really good crunchy softness.

Overall Ease: 5

Cost: 5
We were rushed and trying to get breakfast on the table quickly. I looked up this recipe and had all the ingredients. They are cheap ingredients and generally on hand! 

Kid's verdict:  5

Adult's verdict: 4

Overall Rating:  4
This was a really great biscuit if you're in a hurry. It really didn't take anymore time than getting in the refridgerater and pulling out ready made biscuits. However, if you have the time and energy, I'd go with a different recipe. These would be great under sausage gravy but they didn't have a lot of flavor.

(Rating system is based on the number 1 - 5. One being the worst and five being the best.)
*This recipe was made from the Dining On A Dime Cookbook.*

Happy Tasting!

Hmm. Wish they were gluten-free :) but I'm thinking that 450 was probably too high. I'd try it at 400 next time. Or 375 even - it'd take a bit longer, but they shouldn't burn on the bottom! :) You keep on, Chica! 2012 can be the best year yet! <3

I like the idea of these because I never make biscuits - seems like it would take too long having to cut the circles out of dough. This could be an easy way to have some!
