Talking Best way to warm biscuits?

Wow! Big changes on this board since I've last logged on.

I just made a double batch of my Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, and I have to take them to a friend's for dinner tonight, but want to know the best way to warm them without drying them out. I just want them warm for the dinner.

Thanks,
Jovin

This is quite old fashioned, but my mom would sprinkle a bit of water - just a few drops into a lunch bag, put the biscuits in and close it up - heat it in the oven at about 300 for a few minutes. They tasted fresh as ever. I don't know where she got the idea.

makes sense to me, licia. The water creating a little steam to heat but not dry them out.

My mother is a wizard when it comes to saving. There wasn't much she ever needed to toss out (not with 7 children)(or maybe she did need to toss out some of the children )She had a very good head for saving and spending wisely.

JOVIN! Welcome back! Good luck with the biscuits! My method was just to spray some mist on a tea towel and then to wrap biscuits in that and warm them in the oven. Hope that helps.

Mom sprinkled the water in the bag - not much - after a few minutes of reheating they were wonderful.

What do you mean by "lunch bag"? I like that idea of adding some water to basically keep the moisture in so they wont dry out.
