Maple Wood Biscuit Cutter

We could tell you about these Maple Wood Biscuit Cutters, but we think the woman who makes them does a much better job...

When I was a kid, Mama made biscuits nearly every day. She would mix up the dough the night before and refrigerate it overnight so the dough wasn't too soft when rolling it out the next morning. Her recipe? Mix everything till it "feels right." Yep. That's the secret lol... Mama used her grandma's biscuit cutter, which is a very Southern thing to do. We pass down heirlooms like that, because they mean something to our family. It might just be an old cut out tin can, but it has sentimental value. When we developed our line of wooden biscuit cutters, Mama was hesitant at first, wanting to sit it on the shelf "for looks."

One day, I was there when she was making biscuits and I grabbed the biscuit cutter and tossed it in the flour. "It's dirty now; go ahead and use it," I told her. And she did. That's all she's used since. It has become a new family heirloom. Funny how that works. 

The Maple Wood Biscuit Cutters are great gifts for the biscuit maker or baker in your family. Handmade by a small family-owned business in rural Tennessee from locally-sourced trees (often from the maker's parents' farm). These make exceptional one-of-a-kind gifts that will eventually become a new family heirloom.

We aren't the only ones who loves these. Chef Carla Hall declared they were her favorite stocking stuffer in Food Network Magazine; Southern Cast Iron listed them as a staple in the Southern kitchen; Taste of the South Magazine claims they are a "must have" for your kitchen; and Southern Living called them a "treasured keepsake for generations to come." 

Maple Wood. Makes 2.5" diameter biscuits. Features a tiny hole in the top to avoid a vacuum and let the dough release easily.
