On my Charleston food list was Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit shop for southern biscuits. I found the charming shop on Upper King St and was lured in by the aromas of butter and temptations from the oven. I noticed an employee was making biscuits by rolling the rectangular shaped dough with a rolling pin and then cutting each biscuit using a biscuit cutter.
I knew it was the real thing because the dough was dusted with White Lily flour. I ordered my biscuits and as I munched away, I met the owner of Callie’s, Carrie Morey. She’s a native of Charleston and her buttery biscuits have been featured on Oprah, NY Times, QVC and many more. She was so welcoming and after I left I realized I had crumbs dropping from my face! Maybe that was a nice compliment to her and the biscuits.
Back home, I decided to try my hand at making my own southern biscuits. I found the best recipe for fluffy and finely layered biscuits on cookingmaniac.com. Grandma’s flaky buttermilk biscuits are easy to make and melt in your mouth. This has become my favorite biscuit recipe using butter, buttermilk and flour. Yum many times over!
When I can’t fly across the country to Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit shop, I certainly will make them at home.
