Cat Head Biscuits
To be sure these have neither cats nor heads in them, they are merely named Cat Head Biscuits because of the relative size and shape of the finished biscuits. I found this recipe a long time ago, and it’s one I enjoy putting out with soups and stews. Although the name does throw people.
Or is it Cathead Biscuits?
I don’t know the answer to that question. This recipe is an old Appalachian recipe, and I found very little on it. So I have it marked up as Cat Head which is how I saw the first time. Other places like use Cathead. Everyone seems to agree on the fact that the name come from the size. Cat head size.
You Can Never Have Enough Biscuit Recipes
I don’t know about you, but I have a go-to biscuit recipe, I love it, they are easy and delicious, and I can make them with my eyes closed. But then I found the cat head biscuits, and I may have a new go-to recipe. I saw the recipe on another blog Taters n Beans (gone now!), and she claimed they were the easiest and best biscuits she ever made. They intrigued me, and I had to try them. I think it was when she described the recipe as making 7 or so cat head size biscuits that I knew I was making them.
These are easy to make, no rolling, patting, cutting and such, scoop, turn and drop. And talk about the best biscuits, these are it! I swear I love them. I don’t know, perhaps I was just too familiar with my recipe, but these were tender and tasty and better than the ones I was turning out. If you are using Bisquick give these a whirl and ditch that processed mix for good, you won’t be sorry. Neither will your kids.
