Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees
  2. Soften the butter just enough to cut through easily with a fork
  3. Cut the butter into the flour using a fork or pastry cutter until there are no lumps and you have a course flour
  4. Add the buttermilk a little at a time until the dough is no longer dry (it should be sticky)
  5. Spread flour in a thick layer over wax paper or on countertop and scrape dough out onto the flour
  6. Knead the dough by folding the edges over and mashing down
  7. Do this until the dough is no longer sticky(but still soft enough to work with)
  8. Flatten to about an inch thick
  9. Cut into circles with a cup or biscuit cutter (dip in flour first to prevent sticking)
  10. Place on a cookie sheet or cake pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray
  11. Bake about 10-13 minutes, until no longer doughy around the center, remove from oven and rub butter on the tops
  12. Place back in oven until tops are browned
Recipe Notes

My husband was raised on homemade biscuits. When we got married, that was the one thing he wanted me to learn to cook. After many trials and errors, my mother-in-law taught me how to make them. We have four kids now and they all love them. I even make them for dinner with eggs and homemade gravy, then we have biscuits with chocolate gravy for dessert. I take them to the school for breakfast day during teacher appreciation week and they disappear. My husband keeps telling me they are so good I should enter them in contests! My nine year old is learning to make them on her own now.

Recipe Notes

The inspiration for this recipe came from my mother. Homemade biscuits were always a comfort food that my mother took great pride in preparing for our family of 12. Biscuits cooked in a cast iron skillet always seemed to taste better than any other coking pan. I have been carrying on my mother's tradition for a long time and find it very rewarding to share my southern biscuits recipe with my family and friends.

Recipe Notes

When I was a young girl, my cousin Karen and I decided to cook dinner for my grandparents. When we got ready to make cornbread, we realized that we did not have eggs. So my cousin decided to use mayonnaise instead. I had never heard of such a thing, but it worked out beautifully. When I got older, and decided to try my hand at making biscuits, just like grandma's. I was only successful in recreating Elliemae Clampette's version (hard as a rock, and dry as the desert). Then I remembered my cousin's use of mayonnaise, and voila, light, fluffy, delicious, and with only three ingredients.

Recipe Notes

When my sons played and practiced sports, they were always starving, so I had to have Dinner in a hurry. I found this recipe and modified it so that I could have quick and easy biscuits. I would spoon them out to rise when I got home from work and by the time I finished cooking meat , Veggies and potatoes, they were ready to pop in the oven. We all loved anything with yeast and needless to say I got plenty of complements. My sons are all out of high school now but when they are close by, I still bake them Angel biscuits!

Recipe Notes

I grew up in Tuscaloosa, home of The Alabama Crimson Tide. Everyone in my neighborhood served some variation of this biscuit several times a week. Mary King, also known as MayMay, prepared these biscuits daily. She did not measure the ingredients. The neighborhood children watched her prepare the delicious quick bread, and sometimes she let us help prepare the biscuits. Some of the neighbors referred to them as Bama Biscuits while others called them MayMay's Biscuits.

The original biscuit recipe of Bisquick and sour cream came from my Grandmother. We have experimented with it, and added all kinds of ingredients. The Cinnamon Biscuit recipe was developed for a Pancake Church Supper several years ago. The biscuits are always a hit and go very fast. This recipe is easy to adapt depending on how many people you are serving.

Recipe Notes

When I got married I wanted to cook Biscuits like my mother-in-laws, because they were so good. Buy you could knock a barn down with my biscuits. Eventually I watched my brother's wife prepare biscuits, mixing them with a fork, so I found this recipe in a cookbook, tried it, and the rest is history. My grandson calls the Wheel - Spokes!!!!
My father-in-law would cook this when his wife was either away or sick, and he always called it a Wheel.
