Grandmama's Mayonnaise Biscuits

Do you have a really great cook in your family? I am fortunate to have both a mother and mother-in-law who really know their way around a kitchen. I have learned a lot from them, not the least of which are recipes that reflect our heritages and cultures.  I am a Yankee who spent four years as a child in South Korea. Add to that a Norwegian father who married an English, Dutch, Scottish mother who then settled in central Indiana. All of that created a particular food culture for our family. 

My husband’s tribe of English, Irish, Welsh, and Scottish lineage settled in rural Georgia. Southern cooking is what it is all about on this side of the tree. I have loved embracing this genre. It’s not the healthiest, but boy is it good! On a recent visit to their house, my mother-in-law made her usual feast that most people would reserve for Thanksgiving. To accompany the already ample offerings, she whipped up a quick batch of her Mayonnaise Biscuits so I thought I would share them with you.
