A little dense (but may be because my baking soda wasn't fresh), but good flavor. Overall I expected these biscuits to be a bit more fluffy in texture based upon the photo I had of them in my Way to Bake cookbook, but overall they were tasty. I think the cornmeal took away from "fluffy" of a traditional buttermilk biscuit, but that's not the recipe's fault; more my expectations were off. Otherwise, these were easy to make and I would definitely try them again. I served with the Chipotle-Shrimp and Chilled Avocado soup (also reviewed) and I thought the two recipes went together extraordinarily. The biscuit was hearty enough to round out the meal and use to scrape up the soup from the bottom of the bowl. I'm sure it would be excellent with tomato-basil and probably chowders; enjoy!

This is one of my favorite recipes. The biscuits are a little sweet and absolutely delicious.
