I have known my friend Larry for going on 18 years. When we met, it was love at first site. We quickly became inseparable friends. I was (and always will be) mesmerized by the beautiful tornado of jokes and laughter that is Larry.
For many years he has made these biscuits for his friends and family – he loves to cook as much (or more) than I do. If you were lucky enough to get eat these “out of the world biscuits” then you probably asked for the recipe. I know I did! Larry always said that there wasn’t one. It was a recipe that his old school Grandma had taught him. How much flour? You fill it up to about this high. How much salt? This much (holding the salt in his hand).
I have watched him make these biscuits several times. I have made several delicious “versions”, however, I know for a fact that I have never nailed it. Larry came down to visit for the 4th of July and I hatched a plan to document how to make his almost too easy biscuit recipe.
Lucky me, he is a fantastic photographer – so I got some pointers on how to use my camera better too!
The biggest take away from watching him work his biscuit magic is that less is more. I called it the almost too easy biscuit recipe for a reason. The biscuits aren’t complicated at all. You will try to complicate it – I promise. I know I did. Keep it simple!
Here is a step by step by step hand holding account of how you can make these lip smacking, finger licking, melt in your mouth, straight from heaven biscuits!
There are moments in your life that are golden. Most of the time you don’t know it until later. Getting to make my bestie’s Grandma’s biscuits qualifies as said golden moment. Life is beautiful, my friends!
