My Southern Sons
Cream biscuits are most handy when my family wants biscuits in a snap. My sons are like all other Southern boys, they love a hot buttered biscuit. Being a busy Mom, I must confess, I don’t make fresh biscuits every morning as my Mom and Grandma’s did but, when those big blue eyes look up and me and ask, my heart melts and this is the recipe I can whip-up for them in a hurry.
How I Learned To Make Biscuits
I learned to make Southern buttermilk biscuits at the elbow of my Mom and Grandma’s as a little girl. I was hooked. Biscuits are made in a variety of ways with ingredients and amounts varying from baker to baker. Most cooks here in the South have their own unique way of making cream biscuits, and this is my favorite way that has sort of evolved over the years in my kitchen. All of the recipes are so similar, starting with self rising flour and cream. This variation is my families favorite, and I am happy to share it with you. Serve them hot straight from the oven for breakfast or dinner. See also, Blueberry Biscuits and Honey Cream Cheese Biscuits.
