    With some changes, this is our new favorite biscuit. I added 1/2 cup of milk, becasue it was very dry. Then, I didn't read the complete directions, and did not knead or refrigerate the dough. Just cooked it, drop biscuit style. yummy!  -  25 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The cookies were dry & crunchy...which is what I was looking for, but they were also pretty bland. If I try them again, I will add some more cinnamon, or maybe some ginger or nutmeg.  -  21 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm sure someone had an Alzheimer's moment here. It seems to be missing milk and baking powder. If not, you might as well take some cinnamon and flour, and just stick your tongue in it - this will approximate the same dry, gross texture.  -  05 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
