My thoughts
What a great recipe and this was the one recipe that caught my eye immediately. I did find it a tad salty adding extra salt after there already being salt in the seed mixture; but otherwise love love love with the cream cheese in the dough … drool worthy. I also halved the recipe and it was simple enough, if you don’t need all 12 one day or freeze the other half. The cook time was off for me by 10 – 15 minutes; but I am already making these again Saturday morning.

My thoughts
After making the strawberry shortcake I knew I had the basis for a biscuits recipe and I ran with it and it turned out so well. My mixture rose and everything which was an issue for me the last time I made these over a year ago. I made these once and immediately had excellent reviews and these were mentioned for a whole week; so I made these again but this time using a muffin pan to test out shapes. This was a hit and I even halved my second batch so this time I could enjoy the biscuits without the jalapenos.
