I love biscuits and gravy, especially sausage gravy. I could eat it for any meal, it's like the ultimate comfort food. Not long ago I was cooking exactly that for dinner while on the phone with M. "You're making what?" she asked me. "Biscuits and gravy," I replied. This led to great discussion about biscuits. I had no idea biscuits were not a universal thing. She explained what a "biscuit" is over there. I'm from Texas y'all, we have cookies, we have crackers, and we have biscuits. She asked me what we called a biscuit. How do you describe a biscuit? Listening to me try must have been amusing because Dan was laughing and shaking his head. I should have Googled it. I even tweeted a pic of of a sausage biscuit trying to make her understand.
So, I promised to share my favorite biscuit recipe with her and decided to share it here. When she shares her favorite "biscuit" recipe with me, I'll be sure to pass that along to y'all.
Southern Living's Buttermilk Biscuit recipe is my favorite, although I use white flour rather than wheat. It makes prefect, fluffy biscuits every time.
