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.
