I'm on the quest for the perfect biscuit!
Biscuits bring to mind farmhouses, pioneers, kitchens full of flour, big breakfasts, lots of family gathering around, and hot melted butter. They also remind me of my mom's biscuits and gravy and my mom's Aunt Grace's kitchen back in Oklahoma. Everyone trying to help with cooking, a kitchen crowded with people, and my Great Uncle Howard riding up on his horse to come to breakfast. Such memories of country life for a child that grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles.
So on my quest for the perfect biscuit I steal, (I'm mean write down) every old recipe my mom has every time I go visit her. Not nearly done...cause she has sooo many! This one I found tucked in a drawer paper clipped to a stack of special recipes. She can't remember which relative these came from but knew they had been made many many times.
Try some this weekend and give a taste test to these biscuits. Old timer's swear by them (or at least my family tree did!)
