Lucinda’s Family Biscuits & Gravy

I truly hope you enjoy this tried and true biscuits and gravy recipe that has been in my family for generations. It’s a stick-to-your-ribs, hip-enhancing, good-ol-comfort-food kind of recipe! We often serve it up on a cold winter morning, or even as a late afternoon meal to warm the heart and soul after a long day of working outside. The trick to the biscuits is to make sure to use frozen butter and shred it. The air pockets created from the frozen butter make the biscuits perfectly flaky. 

Long live the family farm, 

Lucinda
