“Biscuit” conjures up the coziest notions: Saturday mornings after sleeping in, the warmth around a family’s kitchen table, contended feelings of fluffy fullness. There’s a new place in town, Alabama Biscuit Company, that has been “rising soon” all year. Last week, the door to the oven, so to speak, was finally flung open. My roommate Doerun and I had the experience just this morning. Their offerings are unique, being made with spelt flour and including ingredients like Biscuit Sauce (maple butter glaze) or goat cheese or almond butter. I tried the Alabama Biscuit featuring the aforementioned sauce and pecans.
The maple butter glaze is exactly as comforting and rich as it sounds. It soaks into the biscuit, and you wish there was more to sop up. Or, more biscuit to sop with. There’s about half a dozen more biscuits on their menu. Thus, I’ll be returning at least that many times. Today started out very good indeed.
