Today, the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are celebrating their own regional food specialties. Everyone has a favorite regional food that brings back special memories from their childhood. Want to get to know an area your visiting? Then you'll want to sample what the “natives” eat. Regional foods have a story that says something about that place and its history.
The recipe I'm sharing today is something my mom made quite often as I was growing up. Fried biscuits are a regional specialty from southern Indiana, that takes just three simple ingredients to make. It was a recipe that was born of necessity during the great depression, but continues being made today because of how tasty they are. If you've ever had the pleasure of dining at Joe Huber's Family Farm and Restaurant, then I'm sure you've tried their fried biscuits. Now you can enjoy these tasty and easy biscuits in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy!

For The Biscuits
2 cups self rising flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups water (more may be needed)
For The Coating
Powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar.
Heat 1/2 inch oil in a heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk together flour and sugar.
Add water and mix well. (Dough should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter. Add additional water by the tablespoon until batter reaches the proper thickness if needed).
Drop dough by heaping tablespoon into hot oil, and fry until golden brown on both sides. (1 - 2 minutes per side).
Drain slightly on paper towels, then toss biscuits in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar till coated.
Serving option: You can skip the sugar coating if you'd like, and serve them with honey butter, or apple butter instead.
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Place sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Stir together with a fork until sugar and cinnamon are thoroughly blended.
Whipped Honey Butter
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, slightly softened
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup powdered sugar (optional, but my family loves the sweeter version).
Place all the ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer, and beat on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
Serve at room temperature.
