Alabama Biscuits

A cross between a biscuit and a roll, these tender, moist biscuits are just the thing to fill a basket in the center of your table. Great for weekends, these biscuits are best served slathered in butter and drizzled with honey or smothered in Southern sausage gravy for a hearty breakfast.
