I was born in Texas, and one thing I can hands down say I miss from my childhood are fresh biscuits. Sweet, savoury, you name it. Biscuits are different than any bread you have had. They are buttery, fluffy and just melt in your mouth.
I always try to bring a bit of food from the places I used to live in back here to Cologne, and biscuits is definitely one of them. There is something always so appealing to me when it comes to food, and it is that everyone has a different feeling towards a certain dish. You can ask anyone you know what reminds them of a certain event or their childhood, and more times than not it has some relation to food. If it be your grandmothers cooking, or your mothers baking, there is always some memory to it.
Since I have moved around most of my childhood, I definitely carry this trait with food. Living in Texas I really enjoyed the southern food. Fried chicken, biscuits with gravy, macaroni and cheese, crawfish. These are all dishes that remind me of living in the south, and you can not find these dishes here, even if you looked for days.
There is one store here in Cologne that sells American products, and I am talking about the stuff that when you live in the US you do not really care about or thought you would ever miss it. Such as, pop tarts, Oreos, soda pop, hot tamales candy, JIFF peanut butter, I mean the most random things you could think of with a ten times more expensive price, excite you, and you end up buying them. Its insane to me, but I am the first one who gets excited going into that store.
This brings me back to why I tend to cook random foods from different places, I like the memories it brings, and biscuits definitely is a fond one of mine. Just a tip from my side, the more butter you smear on it, the better.

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tps salt
1 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup buttermilk

The dough will be sticky and not doughy enough, but this is the consistency you want.
Preheat oven to 200 C.
On a baking sheet add 12 balls of your mixture.

Cover the biscuit dough with the honey butter mixture and put in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
