Grandma Mary’s Biscuits

My Grandma Mary has been baking and cooking her whole life. She is a very talented woman, in and out of the kitchen, and I feel very blessed that she has shared her recipes with me. You can taste the love she puts into her food. Whenever I make one of Grandma Mary’s recipes, the delicious aromas and scrumptious tastes bring back many wonderful memories of her dining room table.


biscuits and jam

One of my favorite recipes of my Grandma Mary’s to make is her baking powder biscuits. These biscuits are fantastic and make my mouth water by just thinking about them. They taste great with butter and homemade jam, covered with chicken and gravy, or used to mop up the last couple spoonfuls of soup. Now Grandma Mary doesn’t roll out the dough and cut out the biscuits in perfect rounds. She simply drops spoonfuls of the biscuit dough onto a cookie sheet and throws them into the oven. Because she doesn’t cut them out, the biscuits come out of the oven with cute golden brown little peaks and points on them. I once rolled out the dough and cut out the biscuits into the traditional rounds but, they didn’t taste the same. I know, I know, I am crazy right? My Grandma Mary has always made her biscuits this way, and I will continue to keep the tradition going strong and do the same.
