    Thanks so much! I don't know why they're called cathead biscuits.. I've only been making biscuits for about a year or so, myself, and I don't make them that often anymore! They're good, but boy, are they fattening:)!

    I heard that the name came from how big these biscuits are....the size of a cat's head? Is that right? They are good too! jett

    I have never mastered the art of making homemade biscuits but these sound delicious. My daddy always called a big home made biscuit a cat's head when I was a little girl. :o)
