Biscuits

Biscuits could possibly be the best and most eaten Southern comfort food. 
My mom used to make the best! Biscuts are eaten at every meal. They also make great snacks and desserts.   Have you ever eaten an onion biscuit? What about fatback biscuit? 

I remember Mom would sometimes make the spoon biscuits too. We called them "ugly bicuits". They were not the best at stuffing butter and jelly into, but they were great "gravy soppers". 
She makes her gravy dark and thick. So thick your biscuit would stand on its own. Ummm boy! That was some good stuff!
Now days, She will just bake up the frozen ones from Walmart.

I never mastered the art of making biscuits. Sometimes they turned out, sometimes they didn't. 
Same with gravy.
I often wonder if Bojangles really has a little grandmaw in the kitchen whipping up biscuits like in the commercials. 

Why am I talking about biscuits? Well, I found this crazy looking dough cutter in my father in laws estate.



Now that can make a lot of biscuits at one time dontcha think? A lady visiting once told me it was a ravioli cutter. Well, I mean, they were Italian. Hmmm.



I reasearched this utinsil and found out it was a "Moline Hex 12 cavity dough or pastry cutter". So im sticking with "biscuit cutter". 

I plan to clean it up and get it back to tip top shape then put it in the estate sale. 
Unless someone will step up to make me a slew of biscuits. 

What's your favorite thing to put in biscuit?

  1. I love apple butter so that is one of my favorites, but you can't go wrong with a good ole slaughtering of peach preserves either.

  2. I always prefer the ones you can get at fast food restaurants as long as they're prepared properly. I always hate when they're buttered down to garbage or dried out.
