Prepare Hurry-Up Biscuits as above, add 1 cup finely shredded or grated Parmesan cheese to flour mixture in Step 1.
Dough mounds can be frozen up to 1 month. To freeze, place mounds in a single layer on a baking sheet or tray. Cover and freeze until firm. When firm, place in freezer containers. Cover and freeze up to 1 month. To bake, arrange dough mounds on greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake frozen mounds in a 375 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.
