Layered, fluffy, feathery, silky, soft, and velvety biscuits all come together in Southern Biscuits, a book of recipes and baking secrets for every biscuit imaginable. Southern Biscuits features easy biscuits that are hassle-free and undemanding to make, as well as embellished biscuits laced with silky goat butter, crunchy pecans, or tangy pimento cheese, and everything in between.
The biscuits in this book encompass a number of types, from the beaten biscuits of the Old South and England, to biscuits reminiscent of Sunday Supper, to modern trends and ingredient combinations. Try Angel Biscuits―a yeast biscuit sturdy enough to split and fill but light enough to melt in the mouth; Carolina Biscuits―flaky little bites made with cream cheese; or Chocolate Soldiers―mixed with cocoa powder and sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar. You will find biscuits for every occasion, from hearty breakfasts to delicate party hors d’oeuvres.
Filled with beautiful photography, including dozens of how-to photos showing how to mix, stir, fold, roll, and knead, Southern Biscuits is the definitive biscuit baking book.
