The Callie's Way: Our Biscuit Size

The Callie's Way

    Our biscuits are made "hot and little" to honor my grandmama's tradition of a southern dinner-size biscuit.

My Grandmama always said, "it's not ladylike to eat a big biscuit." When I heard those words as a child, I didn't understand what Grandmama was talking about. Who wouldn't want a big biscuit? If being ladylike was the price at stake, I was more than willing to forgo that label. Over the years I developed a deep appreciation for the power of a small biscuit and even for the finer points of ladylike behavior - most of the time. What's crazy is that our family tradition of small biscuits has turned into something bigger than Grandmama or I could ever have imagined.

The biscuits that we ship to your door are about 2 inches by 2 inches with the exception of our Gluten-Free Buttermilk and Sausage Biscuits, which are "sandwich-size" (3x3 inches).

Our biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to your weeknight suppers, holiday tables, and party appetizers. The possibilities are endless with numerous accoutrements and recipes. Explore the blog for some delicious ideas on how to serve our biscuits!

  2. Remove biscuits from plastic wrap and wrap in aluminum foil. 
  3. Bake approximately 20-25 minutes – oven times may vary.

Hot Little Tip

Your biscuits will last in the freezer for a year. Keep them frozen until you are ready to reheat them. If you want to cut the baking time in half, thaw them on your counter the night before you bake them!
