ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Carrie Morey founded Callie’s Charleston Biscuits in 2005 with the goal of making the tender, buttery, made-by-hand biscuits of her mother accessible across the country. Touted by Saveur, Food & Wine, Southern Living, The New York Times, and Oprah among others, her biscuits have garnered freezer space in some of the most coveted retail stores in America. Using no machinery whatsoever and with only the finest ingredients, Morey and her small team of bakers are keeping the tradition of Southern biscuit-making alive.
