This recipe was taken from Fannie Farmer's Squash Biscuits (1896)

These biscuits were made at night and allowed to rise overnight and shaped into biscuits for morning breakfast.

The pictured biscuit has a honey cinnamon butter on it. Recipe also below. The butter is a new addition to this recipe.
