One of my favorite memories as a child is watching Mom make buttermilk biscuits. Almost every Sunday morning, Mom would scoop up the flour and start from scratch. They were perfect. Of all the things that I learned from Mom, I never have mastered the art of a perfect biscuit. Oh, Mom used canned biscuits too and we considered them a treat. She’d flatten them out, fill them with home-made apple pie filling and make the best fried apple pies. Add a some ice cream, and you’re in heaven.
When Pillsbury first began making frozen biscuits to bake at home, I jumped on the bandwagon. At last, I could get the taste of home-made biscuits without the fuss. And the best part? I could cook as many as I wanted. If I only needed two biscuits, then that’s all I needed to pull out of the freezer. Anyone knows, there’s no such thing as making a ‘small’ batch of homemade biscuits!

Through MyBlogSpark, Pillsbury sent me information and a Pillsbury Grands!

Pillsbury, through MyBlogSpark, is providing me with an additional prize pack for one of you!
What’s your favorite use for Pillsbury® Grands!®? Do you use them in a recipe? I love cooking home-made pot pies topped with a biscuit instead of pie crust. Topping a biscuit with a little cinnamon, sugar, and butter before baking makes a wonderful dessert. Or, try this yummy recipe for cinnamon butter. The maple syrup adds just a taste of Fall!
1 cup butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Allow butter to soften at room temperature. Beat butter, sugar, syrup and cinnamon together until well blended. Store in air-tight container and refrigerate for at least an hour before using.
