I was a little wary of this recipe.....it seemed too easy! However, it worked beautifully, and the biscuits were gorgeous.

I made these yesterday for the first time. What a surprise! They were so easy to make and tasted wonderful. My grandsons loved them. Am going to make another batch today! Thank you cemiddlebrook

Verdict = Very tasty. I didn't have enough mature cheddar so used 50% grana padano.

No, we have just made them and there's enough moisture from the butter and cheese to bind it all together. Great recipe for my preschool age kids to make, very simple. Haven't tasted them yet though, still in the oven!

Do you not need either milk or an egg to bind all ingrediants to form into dough?

The proportions are perfect, as I have made a similar recipe before. But margarine? Really?
