I can still in memory – taste the fresh buttermilk pancakes and hot buttermilk biscuits – both made with lard! – that were cooked on the top, or in the oven, of that ancient iron stove.~~Vernon L. Smith
Nothing says Southern like a biscuit. Fall is here and September is National Biscuit Month. Biscuits are a staple in any Southern home.  Walk in a Southern restaurant and chances are you will find biscuits on the menu.  Mention biscuits to a Southerner and images of biscuits and gravy, biscuits and chicken or biscuits and butter with homemade jam immediately come to mind.  Southern cooks are skilled at making biscuits and daughters are taught by their mothers and grandmothers before them.  Nothing says comfort food like the traditional Southern biscuit. This post contains 12 of our favorite homemade biscuit recipes.  Get out the biscuit board, the rolling pin and the flour and let’s make biscuits!
