These quick and easy biscuits received rave reviews in our Test Kitchens. We preferred the appearance of finely shredded fresh Parmesan cheese on top of the biscuits, even though grated Parmesan is used in the biscuit dough. If you don't have fresh Parmesan, it's fine to top the biscuits with grated cheese.
