A Caribbean take on an American classic.

These quick and easy, freshly baked coconut bake biscuits are a twist on regular buttermilk biscuits. For an added Caribbean flair, coconut is added to the batter to create a nutty, buttery, flaky biscuit. Great for BLT sandwiches or on their own with honey and butter too.  You can even try them as topping for casseroles and pies, they’re that good!
