I'm a cook, not a baker. But recently, I've begun to take on baking "experiments", and have enjoyed the results. It was the no-knead bread that made me a convert, and now I'm wanting to take on biscuits.
Every thanksgiving, I make my grandmother's "'angel" biscuits- yeast based, and folded so they look like angel wings, which taste great, but aren't what I'm looking for. What I want to make is some big ol' fluffy southern style biscuits.
Anyone have great recipes or tips? I vaguely recall something about making a volcano shaped mound of the drys and putting the liquids in the center and mixing with a fork, but alas, I never got the details on those before my Alabama grandmother passed.
Help me make some great from-scratch biscuits this weekend!
