Cornmeal Biscuits

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

Whenever I crave fresh bread, and I want something quick I make homemade biscuits. It doesn't matter what time of day it is, I love hot biscuits. I found this recipe in Betty Crocker's Old Fashioned Cookbook (1990), and I wasn't sure about using cornmeal. WOW! These are so tasty they melt in your mouth. The cornmeal adds just a little different flavor, and you can't stop eating them. I will definitely make these again, and I don't normally make the same recipe twice. Serve with butter, homemade jam, or honey.

These biscuits were great! They didn't rise much (as you can see from the photo), but they were still light and delicious! I served them warm from the oven. Made for New Kids On The Block Tag Game 1/8/09.
