Dan says these are the “best Biscuits ever,” and coming from him that’s quite the compliment! He likes his biscuits with just a touch of sweet, hence the addition of a little sugar and honey. It really does make a difference! You can’t so much notice any sweetness, but I do notice when I don’t use sugar. I call them “breakfast biscuits” because that’s about the only time of day I serve them. Once in a while I’ll make them to go with a stew but to me, they are breakfast. To my Southern friends, I’m sorry and I hang my head in shame!
It took me a few years…well honestly….quite a few years to get the biscuit making technique down. I over mixed them. Over rolled them. Over baked them and made them way to thin. Whew! I made some seriously tough biscuits in my day! Hopefully I have mastered them now as nothing makes for a wonderful start to your day like a good biscuit sandwich or a fresh from the oven, hot buttered biscuit with homemade Strawberry jam.
Trust me. If you put a plate of these on the table for breakfast Saturday morning, your family will love you even more than they do now! They might even wash the dishes or give the dog a bath. Well, that might be pushing it.
If I can do it, so can you. Let’s get biscuit baking!
This was MY breakfast but Dan took a bite while my back was turned. He does things like that a lot!
Doesn’t it look delicious? It was!
