Here is Bill Carothers who attended a screening of my biscuit film at the Del Webb Community near Nashville a few weeks ago. He went on to sign up for a hands on biscuit baking class with me. Here he is doing his thing, and I have to say he was a natural. I see great biscuit making in his future. He is making my Old Fashioned Yellow Cake Biscuits to top off the berry cobbler that you can see in the foreground of the photo.
To a classic biscuit recipe, we add extra butter and an egg and sugar to give the biscuits a yellow cake like taste and look. Topping a cobbler with biscuits is so Southern so why not? He cut these biscuits into scalloped edged rounds — a giant one in the middle and smaller ones all around. It was a thing of beauty..tasted so good too. We ate everything we baked that day.
