You’ve probably guessed by now, but I absolutely love biscuits! Any kind of biscuit really. The day I discovered I didn’t need a rolling pin or a round cutter to make biscuits (which made it so I didn’t want to make biscuits) a new dawn arrived in my culinary experience. Not only was my prep time cut down substantially, but I wasn’t left with tough biscuits made from the scraps.
A great song to go with eating Honey Biscuits is “Apple Honey” performed by Woody Herman and His Orchestra.
