Recipes from Biscuit Bliss

Biscuit Bliss Cookbook

A good biscuit, fresh from the oven and slathered with creamy butter, is simple, down home, and soul warming. James Villas has baked countless biscuits himself and sampled others from all over the country, and in Biscuit Bliss he shares the very best. No bread is simpler, quicker, and more fun to make: in the time it takes you to wrestle with a cardboard container from the store, you can easily turn out a batch of wholesome, homemade, steaming hot biscuits.
