There was a five and dime type store in Lake Charles, LA when I was a young adult and working downtown. The morning cook was Mrs. Morris and her biscuits were well known all over the area. For so many years, I’ve tried to find a recipe that produced biscuits similar to Mrs. Morris’ biscuits and have never come close, even though at this point, I’m not sure I remember what those biscuits tasted like. Mrs. Morris’ son and his family lived just a few blocks from me and I wish I had asked them for her recipe but never did.
Even though I’m always on the search for the perfect biscuit recipe, if Vince has his choice, we’d always have Cream Biscuits. They’re so easy to make so I never complain when he asks for them. I hadn’t made them in a while and saw someone mention them on Facebook the other day so I made them and Vince has asked for them every morning since. I never mind making them because they’re the easiest of all biscuits to make. No butter or shortening to cut in!
I add sourdough starter when I have it and if I don’t have it, I just skip it and the biscuits still turn out great.
Anything round will cut biscuits but I love this set of biscuit cutters.
There are all kinds of sets out there but this set has four sizes. Now that we’re trying to eat less, I use the next to largest size and it makes perfect little biscuits.
The best thing about these biscuits is that the leftovers are just as good as fresh baked. I cut them in half, spread a little butter on top and stick them in the air fryer.
These are the lightest, fluffiest biscuits ever.
