    this dough was way to wet and sticky to roll into balls. I ended up spreading it on a parchment lined cookie sheet, but they turned out greasy. Something is flawed with the ingredients  -  09 May 2013


    Biscuits turned out beautifully crisp and tasted delicious. Very lemony. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems.  -  07 Nov 2016
