I love to listen for the hiss of the hot oil as the dough makes contact and slightly crisps up on the outside. Meanwhile, the inside bakes to give you a melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, exploding with warmth. Not to mention the butter and honey, giving just a hint of sweetness, melting on the surface of these freshly fried biscuits.

These electric skillet biscuits make it so easy to add a delightful warmth to any meal. Spend less than thirty minutes with your electric skillet and you are on your way. Using premade biscuit dough means no flour to clean off of your counters and much fewer dishes to do too. This really is the most delicious win-win situation when it comes to comfort food.

What do you like to slather on your fresh, warm biscuits?
