Dixie's Sky High Biscuits

Spread the love

So I have attempted to make biscuits twice now.  Both times weren’t complete and utter failure, but they weren’t good either.  Both attempts were quite sad.  And I used 2 different recipes, still no good.

I wasn’t ready to admit defeat just yet though, I just needed to try again.  Well since we don’t eat biscuits a whole lot at my house, every day wasn’t quite feasible either.

So I’ve gotten into reading food blogs lately, but Delightful Country Cookin’ is one I’ve followed for a while now.  And it just so happened that she had a biscuit recipe that I thought looked easy that she posted yesterday.  Since hubby still hasn’t been able to eat really hard foods yet, I figured biscuits and gravy was easy, right 🙂 and it beat soup so when he asked, I suggested this.

I’m proud to announce, I mastered making biscuits.  Now if only that would have been on my 101 list I could cross something off… LOL 🙂

  1. I love homemade biscuits. And just a suggestion — I've not tried this yet, but someone told me that if you put the pan of biscuits in the refrigerator and allow them to cool before you bake them, they will rise higher :). Let me know if you try it!

  2. I can't master biscuits, buns, bread, anything like that – but i blame it on the yeast, but there is no yeast in these…maybe I can make these!

  3. As usual…once again…YUM!!!

    My grandma was a pro at making biscuits. My mom attempts, but they're never like Grandma's. One of the many things I'll miss about her!!
