This was good but the dough was much too soft. I increased the flour and decreased the sugar each by 1/2 c. (as I was afraid the biscuits would be too sweet), and I still had to add a fair amount of flour just to make the dough workable. Even then the biscuits spread a lot in the oven so that they were almost too thin to split. They tasted good and the flavor combination was interesting (even the husband liked them), but I would revamp the biscuit recipe before making these again.
