Monkey Lou’s Biscuits

Linda K. McNeil Wilky posted this on The Organized Genealogist Facebook Group and I got such a kick out of it I asked her permission to post it here.

“Woohoo! Major genealogical find! Just found my Grandma Gibson's recipe for her biscuits! Gma was famous clear across the nation for these homemade biscuits that she made twice a day, nearly every day of her life - breakfast and evening meal. They were always served with butter and either Granddad's honey from his beehives, or Gma's homemade jams, jellies, or apple butter. I can't count the number of times I watched Gma make these right on the table top (one of those white metal painted enamel tables with red paint around the edges). The secret to making these perfectly is to barely touch them when pulling them together, using the soft touch you would use if touching a newborn baby bird.

"Grandma's" real identity was Lillian Mae "Monkey Lou" (Haynes) Gibson. She was born 14 Jul 1907 in Blountsville, Blount Co., Alabama; died 7 Aug 2005 in McPherson, McPherson Co., Kansas.”
