In 2007 America's number one Cajun-style restaurant celebrated its 35th birthday with 1,583 stores worldwide. But Popeyes didn't start out with the name that most people associate with a certain spinach-eating cartoon character. When Al Copeland opened his first Southern-fried chicken stand in New Orleans in 1972, it was called Chicken On The Run. The name was later changed to Popeyes after Gene Hackman's character in the movie The French Connection. In addition to great spicy fried chicken, Popeyes serves up wonderful Southern-style buttermilk biscuits that we can now easily duplicate to serve with a variety of home-cooked meals.The secret is to cut cold butter into the mix with a pastry knife so that the biscuits turn out flaky and tender just like the originals. Follow along as we show you how to make Popeyes buttermilk biscuits at home!

Ice cold butter...almost frozen, then use a box cheese grater. Even distribution of the butter in the bowl will make these to die for!
