These biscuits are originally from an old Betty Crocker cookbook that my mom had I think...They are really YUMMY, and especially good with butter and jelly on top, with a nice mug of hot chocolate! Mom used to fix these a lot on Sunday nights after having a huge dinner. Just something to snack on with our hot chocolate... Fond memories for me for sure...These are great for strawberry shortcake too!
My favourite biscuit recipe! Crunchy outside, soft, buttery inside, with the addition of CHEESE! An adaptation I made from one of Edna Lewis' recipes.
Note: Feel free to use lard or shortening as opposed to butter - I always prefer lard over shortening though.
These buttermilk biscuits are authentic. This recipe came from my great-great-grandmother, and was handed down to all the women in my family, and we are all Southern. I am the first one to commit the sin of using a food processor (lol) but I find it works very well. I would put these biscuits up against anyone's - they are perfect in every single way. I hope you all enjoy them.
I live in Savannah, Georgia, and have encountered these biscuits straight from The Lady & Sons restaraunt. They're incredible! At my former workplace, we had the Lady & Sons cater lunches for training seminars and these were always the first to disappear. This is from a recipe that ran in the Savannah Morning News a few years ago. The sharp cheddar is my preference, although the original recipe simply states "cheddar". If making the jumbo, ice-cream scoop biscuits, this will make about four.
OMG these are AMAZING - my new favorite savory biscuits. They blow Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay biscuits OUT OF THE WATER!! James Villas' new cookbook, Pig: King of the Southern Table shows what all great Southern cooks understand. Lard--and only lard--is the secret to amazingly fluffy biscuit texture.
This is an easy to prepare, mildly-flavored cornbread. I tried this at a friend's house years ago, and promptly asked for the recipe. This has been extremely helpful over the years, as we have picky eaters around here who won't touch cornbread that has actual corn in it, but they gobble this one up! We really like it warm with a bit of butter and honey, or alongside some chili, etc.
Inspired by a Better Homes and Gardens recipe, a Cracker Barrel copycat recipe, and my own curiousity and love for butter, these biscuits are perfect for sandwiches or biscuits and jam. No need to split them with a butter knife since the butter inside pre-splits them in the oven as they bake, leaving a perfect two-piece biscuit with a soft, fluffy, buttery interior.
Per Google.com, the #1 recipe for Beer Bread in the world! There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it! Be sure to use a sheet pan on the shelf below the pan to catch any excess butter that may drip during cooking.
This is my mother's biscuit recipe. They always turn out light and fluffy, the best. I can't tell you how many of these I have made in my lifetime, but I can assure you they are always greeted with enthusiasm and my dinner guests would be disappointed if I didn't have some of these waiting for them, fresh out of the oven.
This recipe is from Lodge Cast Iron, and is also featured in Cast-Iron Cooking for Dummies. It's designed to take advantage of a cast iron biscuit pan or a cast iron skillet or griddle. I used the basic recipe last night, and they came out tender and fluffy like a drop biscuit but with the taste of a good ol' buttermilk biscuit. I'll include variations from both sources in my end notes.
