  1. I loved the video.Thanks for sharing.

    When we got married I could not cook and Hubby knew how to make the best biscuts and so he has made them ever since. A little hint I did learn to make them, but it makes him feel good that he can make them better. Don't tell him, HA! HA!

    1. You know Betty, my dad and late grandfather also make good biscuits! I have not mastered it yet, though.

  2. Hi Anita! Oh, my goodness! I loved this and what a great video. Your little mother is so cute and she had me at 'sweet milk'! I grew up in Alabama and that's what we called our milk. Those are some gorgeous biscuits and my eye is spying that beautiful Pyrex bowl too!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. I LOVE it, Anita!! She had me, too, at sweet milk! I'am a born and raised in Alabama girl and we still call it sweet milk. Your Mama is so sweet and I thank you for sharing her and her recipe with us and I can't wait to make her biscuits. I also love that beautiful Pyrex bowl! Have a blessed day!!

  5. I loved the video. Explained so much I needed to know. I always regretted not learning from my mother and she died young. Wow, a lot of Alabama girls commenting today. I am an Alabama girl too.

    Please thank your mother. BTW, Anita you are a natural in front of the camera. Very poised and professional. You and your Mom were great!

  9. This was a great tutorial. I wish I had some of the White Lily flour. I know I can order it, but they really want to sell it in large quantities - I just need a couple cups. I did not know that the longer you leave a biscuit in the oven the harder it gets. I am also tempted to make square biscuits so not to have to re-roll the scraps. Thanks so much to your Mother.

  10. You don't want dough in the diamonds! I loved that part. Now, I am requesting a video on how to make her old timey sawmill gravy. I've never made it. (Should I be ashamed to admit that? Probably.)

    This was really excellent, and I felt like I was watching a professional production, which it was. I have even created a new pin board for tutorials, and this is my first entry.

    (And her hands on the biscuit dough made me very lonely for my grandmother. Just sayin'...)

  11. My Granny made the best biscuits. I have tried so many different recipes and techniques...just can't get them to taste or look like hers! I will try these this Saturday morning! Your video and your mother's explanation is perfect...I loved hearing her southern accent. My mother's family are all from Mississippi, so I understand the way they say things different from out here in California! I'll visit again soon!

    Thanks!

  12. I am back today to tell you I made your mother's biscuits this morning. They turned out good but not as pretty as hers. I will practice a little more. I will say it does make a mess but my husband was pleased and it was worth it. Thank you for the inspiration.

    I admire the women who made biscuits every morning for years. My mother had a fruit cake tin where she kept her flour . She never measured the milk or crisco. Just pinched off just the right amount and worked the fat into the flour with her fingers right out of the cake tin. She also pinched off dough for each individual biscuit and rolled it with her hand. Then she placed each biscuit in the pan and pressed it down with three fingers. This is the old southern country way of making biscuits. I do regret not making them under her tutelage. Sad how you think there will be time later for things. If anyone younger is reading this take time to learn from your mother or grandmother.

    1. Bonnie, thank you SO much for this comment:-) When I was younger I wasn't really interested in the way my parents or grandparents did things, but now, I am soaking up as much as I can. I miss my grandparents dreadfully, and wish I had learned more from them.

  13. Great video Anita! My mom always made wonderful biscuits, too, but I could never get the hang of it. She doesn't make them from scratch anymore, I'm sorry to say. I so enjoyed watching and listening to your mom because she reminded me of my dearly departed family members (great, great-aunt and grandmother) who were such wonderful southern cooks.

    You're so pretty Anita, and you and your mom did a lovely job with this video. :) Have a great weekend!
