SO HOW'D IT GO?

these were by far the best vegan biscuits I've ever eaten.  The nutritional yeast adds an awesome buttery flavor that always seems to be missing when I make biscuits.  I didn't add any herbs, but I'm sure it would be awesome with them.  I did have to add extra flour to make the dough workable, but they turned out wonderfully in the end.

Oh, how I wish I had listened to JessaCita and added an extra 1/2 cup flour!  The dough was ridiculously sticky.  It stuck to the lightly floured wax paper.  It stuck to the cookie cutter (they were going to be heart-shaped for V-day).  I partially salvaged them by scraping what dough I could off of the wax paper and dropping it onto the cookie sheet.  The flavor was good, though I thought they were a little greasy and salty--more flour would probably fix that too.  I think another solution would have been to use a *heavily* floured surface and dip the cookie cutter in flour each time.

I think they definitely have potential.  I'll do better next time.

These were wonderful. Adjustments I made: half white/half whole wheat, and I used herbs de provence for the herbs (as suggested by another member). I also left the dough in the fridge overnight, but only because I was prepping for thanksgiving the day before. Raves all around. Thanks!!

I was going to take a picture... but we ate them all.

Needless to say, these were delicious.  I threw a little garlic powder and basil into them, and sprinkled rosemary on top.

How important is the nutritional yeast flakes in this recipe?

I think they would turn out okay without them, but I loved the "buttery/cheesy" flavor the nutritional yeast added. I would definitely include it if you can, but I think they'd still be delicious without it! :)

This turned out really bad for me. It was really bitter. I don't know what happened, but it ruined my day :(

These were delicious.  I was surprised at the amount of vinegar--actually, I thought that I had mis-read the recipe and that it was supposed to be two teaspoons--but they were still tasty.  I also found that the dough was very sticky and had to add extra flour.

These are beyond fantastic!!! :D Flaky & savory & fluffy! I have made a couple other recipes for vegan biscuits before, and they were just not...good. Hard as a rock & not soft in the middle at all! These, however, are perfection! Delicious with buttery spread & the mock tuna salad recipe on this site! So easy, too!!

One tip from me: The batter was REALLY sticky, so I ended up adding probably 1/2 c. more of flour as I was rolling them out to cut. YUM!
