“When I was a kid, my dad would get up early every Christmas and make biscuits,” Trisha Yearwood reveals in the new issue of People Country, speaking of her Daddy’s Biscuits recipe.

“Christmas morning was about Santa Claus and a big breakfast with his biscuits! Now that I’ve lost both my parents, I know how precious those memories are,” she says. “When I’m making those biscuits, I think about my dad, who’s been gone seven years, and it’s a great memory.”

1/4 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups self-rising flour
