I’ve lived in the South for more than 15 years, and yet I still didn’t feel qualified to make biscuits. Then I had a crash course from cookbook author Tammy Algood. Her two-ingredient biscuits are genius—heavy cream and self-rising flour, that’s it. The cream provides the fat, and the self-rising flour contains the leavening and the salt. A Nashville resident, Tammy stopped by our photo studio to whip up some biscuits and tell a story or two—she is Southern after all. You can find 800 more of her recipes in her new book The Complete Southern Cookbook (Running Press, 2010).
