When you are in England, you might be offered a biscuit with your cup of tea. (Say yes!) It will be what we call a cookie in the USA!
The above photo shows you the VIP cargo that we brought back last September. See the custard creams? Those are some excellent biscuits!
Biscuits here in America! Bread made with wheat flour, they should be light and fluffy with a nice crust. Best to make them with buttermilk, that is how my Dad makes them.Homemade buttermilk biscuits made by my Dad are the best, truly they are. He makes them in a very old black iron skillet. (See it at the back of the stove?) And he bakes them at 500 degrees!
Boy, I am telling you...these taste wonderful!
This past Thanksgiving we had a big crowd, so my Dad made a lot of biscuits! He used four black skillets (different sizes) to do so, and hey, why not just stack them all in four tiers? Looks good, yes? (The large one on top is what he calls a "hoe cake". If there is a very large biscuit in the middle, that is a cat head biscuit.)
My Dad turned 90 on Monday of this week! He asked my sister for a CD by George Jones. One of the songs is "I Don't Need No Rocking Chair". That's my choice for this post!
