Cheese Biscuits (GF)

 CHEESE BISCUITS
These taste like biscuits or scones to me, but probably more like biscuits. You decide what they remind you of.  I did try a biscuit at Kentucky Chicken and mine also has that crunchy top and bottom and soft interior.  Their biscuit was not flaky nor are these, but these are tastier and at 3.8 g carbs much lower than the 19 g net carbs of that particular biscuit.  This biscuit recipe was inspired by Peggy Hardaway's biscuits over at Buttoni's Low Carb Recipes.  I made previous attempts but this was my best result to date that I made today. I'm excited to share this recipe with you all.  Hope you like it as much as we do.  I have to confess I had them with butter and honey and a thin slice of Monterey Jack cheese.  Yum!  Reminds me of the days when I was in my twenties and loved white bread and butter with golden syrup and cheese.  Yes, I know, know....LOL  Honey of all the sugars I think has some redeeming qualities.  Heck if it can heal a diabetic sore, then it's got to be good.  Honey lasts for years and nothing grows in it and it doesn't go off.  It is very sad what is happening to our Honey Bees in America.  It seems it is the pesticides killing them.  If our Honey Bees die out, we're in enormous trouble!  Nevertheless honey is sugar and most people who are low-carbing or are diabetic will need to avoid it.  I probably need to avoid it too but once in a while it is a treat.  I don't do it every day.  I prefer to use sugar free jam.

Anyway on a lighter note - you have to try this, Philis, if you are reading!   I know you liked the Focaccia bread. I have this feeling you're going to love the biscuits too.  I also have cheese hamburger buns that I'll share soon.
