|Cheddar Cheese Biscuits|
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Don't those biscuits look mouth watering, just scrumptious? Yeah.......not so much. These were not good. These are a classic in the low carb world. I've never really delved into Carbquik until last weeks Pecan Pie Muffins which are now both Hubs and my current favorite dessert, amazingly good. This second shot at Carbquik was disappointing, especially with it being a classic recipe and one I've seen people drool over on other blogs. I MIGHT try it again but with some heavy tweaking of the recipe. As they were, these didn't taste like cheddar, they were dry, a bit crumbling and I couldn't taste any garlic. They didn't taste even remotely close to the ones at Red Lobster, which is what they are supposed to be a copy of. Disappointing.
