Tasty biscuits are a popular dish to serve at any meal. They are a great addition to breakfast as well as dinner, especially when there isn't time to make traditional yeast rolls. Baking powder and buttermilk biscuits are the most popular types, and they can easily be modified to suit your tastes. With a bit of preparation and baking taking as little as twenty minutes, these tasty treats help to add a little bit of comfort to your dinner table.
Biscuits became popular during the Middle Ages, but not as the bread we recognize today. They were typically hard and thin, more on the order of a cracker, although cookies and scones are sometimes referred to as biscuits. Hardtack was a type of biscuit. It could stay hard for months and was ideal for long travels. Hardtack was often dipped in coffee or tea to soften it enough to bite.
