This scrumptious recipe for Thimble Biscuits is from my friends at Martha White and Smucker's. Thimble biscuits are homemade Southern buttermilk biscuits, that are filled with your favorite flavor of jam. It's a fun way to shake-up this classic house bread of the South.
I just can't think Martha White and Smucker's without thinking of biscuits and jam. This simple creation takes so few ingredients to prepare with such a pleasing result they're sure to become a family favorite. Thimble biscuits are homemade biscuits filled with your favorite preserves or jam. Baked to perfection and served hot. It doesn't get any better than that!
On my recent visit to Nashville to spend time with the folks at Martha White, Smucker's and White Lily, the team at DVL was excited to let us in on some news. You may know that Martha White has been partnering with the Country Music Association for decades. In fact, we were treated to a private concert by some of the best singer-songwriters in Nashville during our visit. So what's the big news? Martha White had recently renewed their partnership with the CMA and wanted to announce it to the world. We enjoyed these thimble biscuits as a celebration of this decades long partnership that's been renewed.
