Southern Biscuits

Posted in : All, Breakfast on by : hdcook


I’ve finally made Biscuits for Breakfast~yes Biscuits~warm flaky, tender biscuits are not just served for dinner as a substitute for dinner rolls~they are so good for an afternoon snack with tea or have it for breakfast with some sausage gravy~you can even go simple and just have it with butter and honey~I think that is the best spread and topping~sweet honey and butter~then there are the jams and preserves~second best to spread with these beauties here.  If you look closely in my picture they are not golden brown~well its because they are baked at a lower temperature~for a longer period of time~they turn slightly yellow because of the melted butter that’s been brush on top~these biscuits are cook to perfection~Flaky~tender~crumbly and delicious and it will be your only go~to Biscuit recipe for every occasion~trust me~because these biscuits are my only go-to biscuits Im going to make when ever I want to make biscuits~ABSOLUTE PERFECTION~
