Personal Notes:
My mother was known to be an excellent cook, but anyone who ever tasted her biscuits remembered the experience forever. My daddy had two brothers and two sisters who lived on the East Coast. When we moved to Baltimore in the late 1980s each one, independently, told me they fondly remembered my mother's biscuits. Mama kept both biscuit mix and pie crust mix readily available, making large batches of each and keeping them in the refrigerator. She was able, at any given time, to quickly and easily bake either biscuits or a pie.
