Recipe: Strawberry Biscuits
The Southern staple is given a fruity update with the addition of chopped, fresh strawberries. To ensure the butter doesn't get too soft when forming the dough, we like to freeze it before grating with the large holes of a box grater. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes. Be sure to mix up Basil-Honey Butter to serve alongside. These biscuits are sweet enough to serve for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert.
Recipe: Cornmeal-Chive Biscuits
Prep tip: Press straight down with a biscuit cutter or glass for higher rising biscuits. If you twist the cutter, you'll seal the edges of the dough and the biscuits won't bake as tall.

Pimiento Cheese Biscuit
Recipe: Cornbread Biscuits
Add your own signature spin with a few teaspoons of your favorite herb, such as thyme or rosemary.

Cat-Head Biscuits with Tomato Gravy
Cat-head biscuits are delightfully huge, crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside homemade biscuits. Their size and crunch make them ideal to serve with a thick, hearty gravy. The name comes from their colossal size, about that of a cat’s head. They bake longer and at a lower temperature than their smaller cousins.
