    Lise in Indiana's Note:

    In Nashville, Indiana, this restaurant was THE place to eat - delicious home-style meals and these biscuits. We'd carry home brown paper bags full of these and a couple jars of sweet cinnamony apple butter. I know, these are not "good for you", but what real treat is? Prep time includes rise time.

      I make these frequently and freeze leftovers. They warm beautifully in the oven and taste fresh. We always serve these with homemade crock pot apple butter....just like the Nashville House restaurant...a childhood favorite!

      This is a terrific recipe. I actually fried half and baked half and both were good, except of course, the fried ones were over the top good. I put honey butter on both the fried and baked and both were enjoyed by all. I love the slight yeasty quality of the biscuits.
