Very good! I think I'll make these for Easter next year! I didn't add red pepper flakes as I don't like spicy food. But they were so good! I melted some butter and brushed it over them after I took them out of the oven.

I never have 2% milk in the house...only Almond non-dairy. I would think that would work? Comments???

Easy, taste great. I used whole milk and omitted the crushed red pepper flakes.

These were good, but I expected a little more cheese flavor. Everyone did enjoy them, though. I left out the red pepper flakes, so maybe next time I will add them.

These biscuits were delicious. It even works with gluten free flour. They are just a little more dense.

Love these quick and tasty biscuits. They were very large, so next time I will make them a little smaller and decrease the baking time. The garlic flavor was just enough and the red pepper flakes did not make them "hot"... but only a slight taste of heat on occasional bites. This was good for my family.

Thanks, Christina, for sharing this delicious recipe. I cut the recipe in half and we enjoyed the biscuits last night.

As the author of this recipe says, I also don't enjoy the rolling that usually comes with homemade biscuits. This is a very tasty and easy drop biscuit recipe. They rise up nice and fluffy. I also loved the garlic component of them!
