Personal Notes:
The smell of grandma's biscuits baking could raise the dead. Irene Moore-Rivers/Hinson made these beauties in the wee hours of the mornings in South Carolina while Grandpa George fried home made pork sausage and brewed steaming black coffee. Dad brought the recipe back home and made them in Tampa for Christmas breakfasts and other family gatherings. These buttery biscuits melt in your mouth and their free form shapes give texture to any breakfast. Enjoy!
