Robinhood Meetinghouse Biscuits- a Local Treasure

One of the things I really adore about "southern food" is their biscuits.  Big, flaky treasures of buttery goodness-biscuits are perfect to enjoy on their own, paired with hearty chili's, or topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream as a delicious dessert.  Several weeks ago I was sent boxes of biscuits from Robinhood Meetinghouse to review.  I was in the midst of packing up my life when they arrived, and in the throws of moving, I neglected to write me thoughts for you to enjoy earlier, but I could not resist indulging in these right away.

They generously sent me three different types of their biscuits- their Triple Ginger, Sweet Potato, and Cream Cheese varieties.   First off, I had to try the original recipe- their Cream Cheese Biscuit.  These had the classic flavor, delightfully rich and decadent.  The tang of cream cheese was offset by the sweet cream butter flavor.  The thing with biscuits really though is are they layered and flaky?  Do they melt in your mouth with every bite?  Are they flavorful enough to enjoy all on their own but perfect to pair with your favorite dish.  Robinhood Meetinghouse's were deliciously flaky and I could picture them topped with any number of gravies or toppings.

Then I ripped into the Triple Ginger first and was greeted with a burst of spicy ginger flavor.  Robinhood Meetinghouse had blended together fresh ginger, ground ginger, and even candied ginger into these little pillows and when combined with their base cream cheese biscuit recipe the sweetness of the biscuit with butter was a delicious twist to the classic. 

Finally, I checked out the Sweet Potato biscuits.  Starting with the same great flaky base, these had a lovely natural sweetness with a hint of cinnamon which I feel could make them a perfect addition to a holiday meal- a little turkey, a little cranberry sauce- these will make those leftovers fly of the table.

No matter which variety you choose, Robinhood Meetinghouse has a great product created which can be found easily in your grocers frozen food section.  These are a great addition to breakfast lunch or dinner, and an incredibly simple way to bring decadence onto your table.

I still need to write a post about these biscuits, but they were incredible. I received the cinnamon roll ones instead of the ginger, and...well, I highly recommend you try those, too! ;)
