Today’s recipe is just that sort of recipe that comes from my girlfriend, Lane’s mom, Mona Ellis. I call them Mona’s Incredible Cheese Biscuits. At my church, where we all attend, they are known through every generation. If we’re hosting a brunch or morning snacks between services, you can hear the murmurs that Mona brought her biscuits before the last amen is spoken. Her platters are inevitably the first to empty, they really are that good.
So in celebration of moms, young and old, here is another mother to daughter recipe, Mona’s Incredible Cheese Biscuits. You’ll want to grab the scissors for this one, it will be one of those recipes you want to pass down from generation to generation.
