A couple of weeks ago I had one of the best mornings ever. I toured the biscuit mecca, Callie's Charleston Biscuits. And when I say mecca I mean mecca. Don't let the "Charleston" in Callie's Charleston Biscuits fool you into thinking this is just a local thing. These biscuits are shipped all over the country all-day-long. You may have seen them on QVC (again!) yesterday. It's serious business y'all. Because these biscuits are seriously the bees knees.
The Callie's Biscuit House is in the Navy's old medical building in North Charleston, SC and is full of charm and history. You really should take a visit if you're ever in the area. But even more important are the ladies inside :) While the biscuit recipe comes from Callie, Callie's daughter Carrie is who has made it possible for all of us to enjoy :)
Carrie and her team are making buttermilk biscuits galore, think ham, black pepper bacon, cinammon, cheese and chive. They're also making some of the best pimento cheese and jam you'll taste. I told you, this place is paradise. Good thing I'm not there every morning. Who can turn down Carrie's cute daughters?
I always, always have a pack of Callie's Biscuits in my freezer. They're the perfect go to for guests, morning or night. Just like when my friend Anna came by for porch wine a week ago (we finished the entire basket of the cheese and chive biscuits). I also brought some along to the mountains this past weekend (they were devoured too).
