What is your favorite food or food you crave? I love homemade country biscuits, though I'm bad at fixing them. Would like to find ones where you just add water or milk.

I love triple pepperoni pizza with double cheese.

Pinkystinky- I too love good buttermilk biscuits.
Ones like my grandma used to make. The closest
I have found to them is at Hardy's. If I close my
eyes while eating one, I can almost fool myself
into thinking they are hers. I suck at making
biscuits too. My family says they would be a cheap
alternative to use during war to bombard the enemy.

I can make good (not buttermilk,just sweet milk) biscuits.
But most of the time I hate the hassle,
so we have tried lots of different kinds of alternatives
such as canned,frozen and even buying at restaurants.
I prefer Hardees if we do that.
I don't know if y'all have these in your area or not,
but if you do give them a try---
Mrs. Bs southern made biscuits,frozen in a clear and RED bag.
Be sure to lightly grease your pan like it says.
We have found these to be as close to home made as they come.
Pillsbury has some pretty good frozen ones too,
but I think Mrs. Bs has got 'em beat.

As for myself,I have too many favorites to narrow it down.
But I will name my very favorite ice cream...
Mayfields select Brown Cow (not the ones on a stick)
I eat mine in a glass (always)
and when I have got it dipped out I poke a hole down the middle of it
with my spoon and pour just a little bit of milk down in the hole.
Call me crazy if you want to...
but after you do (and you stop laughing) go try it...
then tell me your opinion.
Made me want some just telling y'all about it. Smile Smile

Appreciate the link elcelcpa, but that's way too much work for me. Rather have a mix you just add water or milk to.
Several years ago, I bought House Autry biscuit flour. I added mayonnaise to the flour instead of oil. Turned out great. Tried the same thing a while back, it didn't do well. I can't cook.

Indeed,those do look awfully good.
But I must say,I've never heard of sugar in biscuits.
Unless it's brown sugar after they're cooked...
warm enough to melt butter and then add a spoonful of brown sugar...
DANG---that's good Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Not speaking for all, but most Southerners wouldn't put sugar in biscuit mix no more than they would put sugar on grits.

To PINKYSTINKY and anyone else looking for ......

Here is a REALLY simple biscuit - you can't go wrong with it....

1 cup self-rising flour - just fluff it up with a spoon and fill you measuring cup, then level off with a knife. You will need a full cup of flour for every 4 2" biscuits.

approximately 1/2 cup sour cream - you can use a low-fat sour cream, but not fat - free

Stir the sour cream into the flour until it forms and dough. Press out on a floured surface to about 1/2" thick. Cut into rounds or just use a knife and cut into 4 biscuits. Place on a sheet pan and bake at 425 degrees F for about 12 minutes or until lightly brown. That's it - simple and very good!

The first time I ever heard of sugar on grits...
I can't remember if I just said "Whaaat Question"
or if I really almost choked before I (said) asked. Smile Smile
I think grits should be treated like gravy...
gimme the salt and pepper (maybe some butter in the grits)


Do you know what 'grits' stands for Question Question

G-R-I-T-S
stands for........

Girls
Raised
In
The
South


Just thought I'd throw that little bit of trivia at y'all.

I'm gonna run the risk of sounding dumb........
if I double the amount of flour do I double the amount of sour cream?
I would guess the answer to be 'yes',but you just never know,
sometimes in some recipes you don't actually double the other ingredients.
I would like to try this because it sounds so simple,
but 4 biscuits(if they're good)would never be enough for here Smile Smile
I may try it out doing 4 (if I can't wait for your reply) just to sample them.
BTW........thanks for posting this recipe.
