These biscuits are not only simple, but are light and not too dry...exceptional!



Great for brunch or dinner!



These were WONDERFUL and so easy to make. I did not add the salt because there is plenty in the Cheddar cheese. I rolled them out to about 1/2" and used a biscuit cutter and was able to get 9 biscuits. For a change of pace, I will substitute the green bell pepper with a can of chopped green chilies, just for a spicier biscuit, but they are perfect the way they are! Thanks for agreat recipe, Nell!
