    This was a pretty good recipe. I like the toasted cheese flavor on the outside of these biscuits – kinda tastes like cheese-its! The one thing that would hold me back from making them again is I like to put some sweet stuff like jam or honey on a biscuit, and in this case, the cheese flavor to a great extent conflicts with most sweet flavors (honey; honey berry [kamchatka] jam) I tried with Jef’s biscuits.

    p.s. I used whole-wheat pastry flour (the one from Azure Market) according to the suggestions prior and the end product turned out just fine, just in case anyone was wondering about substituting whole-wheat flour.

    Hi Pam Lanz! Thanks for checking out the recipe! Low fat biscuits are challenging, as the butter and cheese add fat, but also flavor. You can however, choose to remove the sugar and not lose much in the recipe.

    Hi Michael! The recipe would be the same for wheat flour, but you may need to slowly add a bit more liquid. Thanks for reading!

    They sound very rich with all that butter plus cheddar cheese! I’m always looking for recipes that are lower fat. Any ideas for doing that but keeping a great tasting biscuit? I’m also wondering why there’s any sugar added in at all. I think it’s unnecessary and wouldn’t add any.

    Try using White Lily all purpose or self-rising flour. It makes a wonderful soft, smooth biscuit and/or scone.
