Melt in Your Mouth Biscuits

This recipe “cheats” by using Jiffy Mix. Make the biscuits as directed on the box, except substitute buttermilk for the liquid. If you use whole, thick buttermilk, you may need to add more than what is called for in the recipe.

Mix 3 tablespoons of butter with 1 tablespoon honey until the honey and butter are thoroughly incorporated. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add a bit more honey. Put the mixture in the microwave for 2-3 seconds and stir. Repeat until the mixture is loose enough to “paint” the top of the biscuits with a brush.

Paint the tops of the biscuits with the honey butter. Bake according to the instructions on the box. You may want to check them early, especially if you are using dark, nonstick pans. The honey butter will cause the tops to brown up quite a bit.

Sweet Cornbread

This is another “cheat” recipe that you can get away with calling homemade. You’ll need a cast iron pan and either lard or bacon drippings, with the drippings being the first choice. Coat the sides and bottom of the cast iron pan with the bacon drippings.

Mix up two boxes of Jiffy Cornbread mix as directed, but use buttermilk instead of milk or water and add ½ cup of granulated sugar to the mix. Pour the mix into the prepared pan and bake as directed. Keep an eye on it – the dark pan makes it done sooner than the times listed on the box. The cornbread is done when a toothpick comes out clean when tested near the side of the mix.
