Mamma's Secret To Makin' Biscuits repost

Mamma’s Secret To Makin' Biscuits


Mamma was famous for her biscuits, even got a write up in the paper. My sister 'n I asked her what her secret was to makin’ 'em. We wrote down the recipe as she told us. When the dough was made, she dumped it from the bowl onto a floured table. Then she fluffed ‘n folded the dough end to end into a nice round ball. Here's the secret - she said she always gave it a "love pat". Then she took her rollin’ pin 'n lightly rolled over the top of the dough. She used her fingers to fluff from underneath to get out the air. Mamma said not to twist your cutter to cut the biscuits. Then once they were cut, fluff from under 'em again 'n place onto a bakin’ pan.


Mamma loved people ‘n loved to cook for 'em, ‘n she loved seein’ people eatin’ her food.  One of her favorite Bible verses is John 3:16.  She said that when God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins that was God's "love pat” to a hurtin’ world. He loved us that much!


John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Lord, thank you for your "love pat" 'n your grace. We are grateful. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Things To Think 'bout:

1. Do you know God loves you?

2. Are you spendin' time with Him?


  1. Thanks for sharing this post. It brings back memories of my Mama making biscuits. She never cut hers out with a biscuit cutter she always just patted them out with her hand. I think baking biscuits and cooking for people is an act of love. But, nothing we do can compare to the wonderful gift of love God gave us through Jesus Christ. Bless you, my friend. Deborah H.
